Why We Love Athena

ATHENA is an amazing organization that supports and develops women leaders.Monica Kelly
Athena is so much more than business networking. In fact, it’s not about that at all. And although becoming better networked is a happy by-product, it’s really about developing the leadership skills for ongoing success.Karen Estrin
