Welcome to Athena!
At the Athena Center for Leadership, we dream of a better future and we build it, in community, by taking on the intractable challenges of the present.
HOW WE WORK
WE ARE COLLABORATIVE.
We create space for the messy work of collaborating across disciplines and lived experiences, across hierarchies and locations, because the change we need won’t come from a single approach or a single person.
WE ARE RESPONSIBLE.
We know change takes time, and we move at the speed of trust, mindful of the impact of our work on others and the work that was done before we arrived and upon which we build. We ask, “Who might be helped by our ideas, and who might be harmed by them — and what can we do to prevent harm?”
WE ARE RESILIENT.
We know the change we need won’t come from a single try — we find joy in the journey.
At Athena, we offer inspiration, guidance, our network, and funding. Read more about what that looks like here.
