The Athena Alliance secures its first corporate sponsorship from Intuit

The Athena Alliance is proud to announce that it has secured its first corporate sponsorship from Intuit. Intuit’s generosity will enable The Athena Alliance to increase the visibility of executive women and diversify their leadership opportunities through networking and corporate board matching.

The Athena Alliance wishes to extend special thanks to Merline Saintil, Head of Operations (CTO and Product and Technology Office) at Intuit and our champion at the company. Says Merline, “at Intuit, we encourage employees to bring their whole selves to work. We celebrate diversity and value inclusion. The Athena Alliance’s vision of a world where women can contribute at their highest level of impact naturally aligns with our commitment of cultivating a talented, engaged and diverse workforce at all levels.”

As of July 2015, women represented 38 percent of Intuit’s global workforce and 33 percent of Intuit’s leadership roles. The company actively sponsors programs and opportunities to encourage women and ethnic minorities to pursue careers in STEM. Other benefactors of Intuit’s generosity include the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, Girls Who Code, and Watermark, a community of executive women advocating for the advancement of women in the workforce.

The Athena Alliance wishes to extend our sincerest thanks to Intuit for their support.

If you or your company would like to sponsor The Athena Alliance in their mission to advance women’s leadership and visibility, please reach out to our CEO at coco@athenaalliance.org.
