Athena International logoThe Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce has been selected by the ATHENA International to be the statewide sponsor of the ATHENA Leadership Award and the ATHENA Young Professional Award. Nominations are now open through August 15, 2109.

The ATHENA Leadership Award was inspired by the goddess of Greek mythology known for her strength, courage, wisdom, and enlightenment. The ATHENA Leadership Award embodies these qualities in their leadership model and honors women who strive toward their highest level of accomplishment, leadership, mentorship, and advocacy for women. The award celebrates the potential of all women professionally and in a community.

This is a very prestigious recognition presented to a person who provides significant mentoring and direction to women professionals. The nominee actively supports and encourages women in reaching their full leadership potential by acting as a role model within the workplace and community.
