“One of the best investments I made in my professional growth was signing up for Athena NextGen. Meeting and connecting with other professional women in our community from all walks of life was really eye opening for me in evaluating how we all share the same struggles, highs, and lows, when it comes to making space for ourselves in the workforce.
Learning the Athena principles helped me navigate new ways to value my strengths and areas of opportunity, but best of all - this experience afforded me the chance to learn from like-minded women who were inspiring, supportive, and genuine.”
“I went into the program just hoping to absorb as much knowledge, tips, and leadership advice as I could; and I left not only with a diverse range of new skills to bring back to my organization but with a community of incredible, empowering women that I know I can continue to turn to and ask for help.
The level of empowering collaboration I witnessed in this program, even in a virtual setting, truly was something I never experienced before. I honestly believe that I am a much better leader today than I was when I first started in the ATHENA program, and I know that my organization is going to benefit from my ability to now make a bigger impact towards our mission.”
