Provide leadership development and mentorship opportunities to empower women
Develop a statewide network of business leaders invested in leadership diversity
The ATHENA Leadership Model identifies eight distinct attributes that are reflective of women’s contributions to leadership: living authentically, learning constantly, advocating fiercely, acting courageously, fostering collaboration, building relationships, giving back and celebrating. These personal traits that are more intuitive to women, and combined with the strongest aspects of traditional leadership – taking risks, assertiveness, hard work – prepare women to be successful leaders in the 21st century.
The Michigan ATHENA program is administered by the Michigan Chamber of Commerce.
