Athena International Women’s Leadership Day
the Licensed host organization’s perspective:
"This historic event is an opportunity to help future leaders with connections, support and mentoring. It is your way to help the future women leaders in your community.Just think how powerful this event will be with a room full of women, one-half established leaders and the other half emerging leaders."
~Carrie Herman, President, Women’s Network, Akron, OH
the sponsor’s perspective:
"As one of four sponsors for the ATHENA International Women's Leadership Day Lunch, we had the opportunity to be part of the first pilot for a very important new program. In addition to the traditional media coverage and program recognition, we were honored at the lunch. But the most important part was providing support for women leaders, particularly the emerging women leaders. Thank you to our sponsors: Diane Johnson, Law Offices of M. Diane Johnson, Angela Fremon, Cole Industries, Inc., Angelina Milo, Cohen and Company."
~Norma Rist, ATHENA International Past Chair
and 2003 ATHENA Award Recipient
"The ATHENA International Women’s Leadership Day Luncheon was a perfect opportunity for the women of Indiana, Pennsylvania to interact with the many young women in our community who have shown interest in learning more about women's leadership. Young women from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, IndianaAreaHigh School and IndianaAreaJunior High School actively participated in the roundtable discussions facilitated at the luncheon by ATHENA recipients. One tenet from the ATHENA Leadership Model was discussed at each table with a summary of the discussion provided by one of the young women before we adjourned. It was fun and inspiring for all who attended. We are looking forward to the next luncheon."
~Ellen Ruddock, 1987 Indiana, PA ATHENA Award Recipient
"It was a great opportunity to meet in person so many of the female leaders that I have previously only read about in the Beacon or heard about from my mom. The frequent references to 25 years of friendship and leadership with the other women in the room was powerful and set me thinking about how the relationships I am developing with other 'established' and 'emerging' leaders will evolve and how they will impact our community. Thank you for thinking of me and giving me the opportunity to learn from you and the other leaders in our community."
