The ATHENA Leadership Award was inspired by the Greek goddess of wisdom and warfare. The embodiment of good counsel and heroic endeavor, Athena was admired for her courage and devotion to civilization and justice. Athena knew her worth and forged her own path. The ATHENA Leadership Award is presented to the woman or man whose own path shows achievement at the highest level of professional excellence, who is devoted to improving the quality of life in her or his community, and who actively assists others, especially women, in realizing their leadership potential.
Since 1982 more than 7000 individuals around the world have been honored with this award on the local, national, or international level. The ATHENA Leadership Award is presented annually by women's organizations, universities, and chambers of commerce. The Pickerington Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to participate in this prestigious leadership awards program.
