The ATHENA® Leadership Award Program

Supporting, Honoring and Developing Women Leaders

What Sponsors Have to Say

“Our dealership has been involved with the ATHENA Award Program as a sponsor for 20 years….To be associated with such a great program is a very good thing for your dealership. What I would say to other GM dealers is, just do it!”

“As a Sales Manager, I am always trying to evaluate how our marketing efforts support business goals. With the ATHENA Award, it has been evident right from the start. As people in the community learned about the program, the ATHENA mission and National City’s sponsorship, there was an immediate and positive reaction. We are distinguished as a supporter of an important and unique program that is held in high regard. And it provides an excellent platform for a number of business development efforts targeted at women in the workplace as well as the entire business community.”

Through our participation, we are positioned to meet professional women, transact business and form career building opportunities.”
