Member Networking & Development Programs
Forums for Executive Women (FEW)
At Athena, we’re known for carefully selecting our members, connecting you to a dynamic peer group and providing a unique platform for you to share your challenges and successes with each other. Many Athena members consider FEW to be essential to their career playbook. In each FEW group, members are from non-competing companies who meet on a regular basis to share friendship, ideas and support in all aspects of their career development. 2017 FEW applications are now open here for Athena members in good standing.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Special Interest Groups were established to address trends and issues specific to our member's industries. Participants in these groups identify issues that are important to their industry and drive the programs designed to amplify the dialog to broader audiences. They cultivate "thought leadership" and expand their networks in ways that are not always possible in their work environment.
CEO & CFO Forums
CEO & CFO Forums provide tremendously valuable communities for women who are in the C-suite at public or private corporations. Athena provides a private setting for our members who are in CEO or CFO positions to come together with other women from a variety of businesses to share successes, challenges, confidential business strategies and management techniques to overcome obstacles and accelerate growth. These programs are designed by and for Athena Members who are CEOs or CFOs and are not open to our general membership. Interested CEOs/CFOs should contact Athena's Executive Director for placement.
Women as Leaders
At the beginning of each year, we invite our members, and the community at large, to hear an extraordinary panel of women leaders from different walks of life share their advice, insights and inspiration about their path to success. Attendees enjoy networking, renewing and making new connections, as well as learning practical strategies for becoming successful leaders. It’s a dynamic and enriching experience.
Athena, in collaboration with research partners, define the unique experience for women in Southern California with a focus on the City of San Diego, North County and Cali Baja.
