As you progress through the ranks of leadership within your company, your ability to advance increasingly depends on showcasing your saviness as a steward of the business overall.
We support and champion women who are already highly accomplished, partnering with these leaders to level up even further.
I have gained tremendous value from attending many of the Athena Alliance events over the past four years. The networking is invaluable and I have been able to leverage these new relationships in many ways.
I’m a firm believer in the value of participating in events, the key is to not to just show up at the events, it is what you do during events and post events. The real value in Athena events is that they serve as an opportunity to elevate your network.
I had thought I had a good handle on it. But I learned how to have a more executive presence. To speak more deliberately. To avoid uptalk. I’ve been the only woman in the room for 30 years, so I thought I could do this. But the experience with Athena was very helpful and empowering.
I know you are behind many women, but I can't help feeling you are behind me with such a strong forward force, that I feel like the only person you think about, the only person whose mission you are moving forward.
Athena Alliance is one of the best ventures in self-development that I have done. The aspiration and connection, provided me with entry into a world I didn’t even know existed. I think every senior leader at Microsoft ought to have access to an experience like this.
Delphix is proud to partner with the Athena Alliance in our joint commitment to empowering more women to pursue positions of leadership. A trusted advisor, the Athena Alliance recognizes the impact that diverse perspectives can make to propel brands into true market leaders.
I have gotten a great deal out of my membership with Athena and look forward to continuing the relationship.
The networking that I have done as I have connected with other highly successful women in the area has been priceless. Even thinking of myself in that same “league” as some of these highly accomplished women has shifted my personal self-perceptions.
Just want to say thank you again to Devon for organizing, Marilyn for hosting, and Bill Wagner for sharing his insights into managing the Management/CEO/Board relationships. It was fabulous to learn from Bill and all of your questions and comments. I look forward to the next event.
This was another knock-the-cover-off-the-ball event. Everyone was so engaged. We touched the tip of a very important iceberg.
The work that the coaches did with me to hone my elevator pitch has again been very effective in the way I introduce myself to C-level executives now and has boosted my own view of myself and my role.
Adriana is responsive and gets things done with a very high level of quality. She is a master with words and how to communicate effectively and efficiently. Thanks for having her work with me.
My sessions with Hillary have been so informative, so enlightening. I have made your insights a fabric of my life in everything I do.
There are some organizations that offer executive coaching, but none offer much of a hands-on journey experience all the way through the boardroom like Athena.
Athena helps executives shape a board bio, tell their story, and connect to the right networks to ensure you are in the right place at the right time—all of which are difficult to do when you’re super busy. The fact that it can be tailored to each individual member is amazing.
As the very first investor in Athena Alliance, I continue to be impressed by the tremendous impact and growth that this organization has had in such a short period of time. Our mission is bold and compelling and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.
The Athena community is incredible. I’ve made invaluable connections: two advisors and one potential customer, which I did not expect! The bar is just really high.
Athena is an organization that has changed my life for the better. Athena’s white glove service is unlike any other ‘women’s organization’ I have been a part of. I felt the Athena team truly wanted me to succeed and would do whatever possible to make it happen.
The journey has been great. The coaches and the process for Athena have been excellent.
We’ve enhanced our network of top executive women who are actively engaged in discussion with our firm and our portfolio by 142 in the last year alone.
I really appreciated Adriana’s help with my EP over the last few days. The turnaround was quick and I had several "aha's" from our conversation about how to position myself better. And, I loved her approach to getting to my value.
I cannot say enough great things about Athena Alliance. It’s been a wonderful journey so far, even without a commercial board seat to date. I’ve been doing a ton of networking with board members and they are unanimous in one bit of advice—don’t rush to that first board seat.
Autodesk invests heavily in development and diversity and inclusion for our employees but did not have much targeted at the executive levels. Athena has been a great supplement to our diversity and inclusion efforts while also providing growth and development for our most senior women.
In my role as a venture capitalist, I serve on Boards and help our companies build their Boards. I have attended and participated in a number of Athena Alliance events, and have always been impressed by the quality of executives in the network, the content of the events, and community.
