Becoming Athena - Women's Leadership Program

The ATHENA Leadership Model is the philosophy and framework for everything we do. The eight principles of leadership that it sets out are proven, specific and actionable. With immense gratitude, we believe that it will be through leaders, who intentionally embrace and develop their capacity to lead, that our next generation will learn to live by the Athena principles.
