Special Interest Group (SIG) Events

Experts Share Experiences, Strategies and Explore What's Next 

The entrepreneurial spirit is a drive and determination that pushes you to explore your passions, build something from the ground up and truly deliver something wonderful to the world. Sound familiar?

Most Athena members are passionate about excelling in their careers and are actively involved in Athena SIG groups. In response to our members need to explore issues that are specific to the technology and scientific industries they work in, we've gathered together inspirational leaders from innovative companies to share their experiences, strategies, lessons learned and what's next on the horizon.

Athena SIG events are designed for our members but are open to anyone interested in advancing their STEM career.
