Athena members become knowledgeable in real-world boardroom insights as well as strategic leadership, unlike any other coaching program on the market today.

From our members

Amy Bunszel

SVP Design and Creation Products, Autodesk

“Autodesk invests heavily in development and diversity and inclusion for our employees, but did not have much targeted at the executive level. Athena has been a great supplement to our diversity and inclusion efforts while also providing growth and development for our most senior women.”

Gavriella Schuster

Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Software, Microsoft

“Athena Alliance is one of the best ventures in self-development that I have done. The aspiration and connection provided me with entry into a world I didn’t even know existed. I think every senior leader at Microsoft ought to have access to an experience like this.”
