Athena Awards Program

ATHENA AWARDS PROGRAM

ATHENA AWARD NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!

The ATHENA Award actively supports and celebrates the ATHENA mission of supporting,
developing and honoring women leaders, inspiring women to achieve their full potential—creating
balance in leadership worldwide. The ATHENA Award honors individuals who strive toward the
highest levels of personal and professional accomplishment, who excel in their chosen field, devote
time and energy to their community in a meaningful way, and forge paths of leadership for other
women to follow.

ATHENA and ATHENA Young Professional Awards®

For more than two decades, the Greater Flagstaff Chamber has presented the ATHENA Award to a local businesswoman who has achieved excellence in her field, served the community and assisted other women in the attainment of their goals. The Young Professional Award was added in 2007, and recognizes women who are emerging business leaders and clearly serves as a role model for young women both personally and professionally.

Finalists for both awards are honored in a special Arizona Daily Sun tabloid and at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting in January.
