Our Mission

Coco Brown, Founder and CEO of The Athena Alliance

Why We Exist

The greatest success in getting to gender parity on boards is being achieved by the largest companies. They have the pressure and the funds to invest in recruiting to find women. The smaller the company, the more reliant they are on their network to fill board seats. The majority of companies today are founded and/or financially backed and run by men. These companies don’t have a strong network of executive women, and they don’t have the funds to pay recruiters to find them.

Smaller / New Companies Are Less Diverse
