Rest In Peace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's quiet, forceful, brilliant voice of leadership rocked the world. We revere her as one of the most distinguished role models in our time. We were honored to welcome her into our family as a Global ATHENA Recipient in 1995 and to see the ATHENA sculpture, and the meaning it conveyed, in her Chambers for 25 years. She used the law to frame the rights of women and reframed the definition of leadership to include women's ways of leading. She exemplified the ATHENA leadership principles of Fierce Advocacy and Building Relationships as she towered above the contentiousness around her. Her wisdom and example will inspire generations to come.
