Athena Leadership Academy

The Athena Leadership Academy offers companies a 3-part workshop that provides soft skills training for women in STEM. Led by Dr. Alessandra Wall, Athena’s resident clinical psychologist, participants can expect to access the practical tools and operational strategies for accessing social capital, leading collaboratively, self-advocating and establishing allies. If you’re eager to close the gap between your progress and your potential, secure your seat at Athena’s Leadership Academy.

The Athena Leadership Academy supports the transition for STEM professionals that realize career advancement requires much more than academic knowledge obtained through higher learning institutions. It requires self-awareness and an investment of time to identify and acquire key professional skills essential to advancing your leadership development. 

Soft skills are personal competencies that improve human performance, facilitate effective interactions, complement the technical requirements necessary to create impact in the workplace and scale your career objectives.
