Join us for the ATHENA Fall Luncheon on October 6, 2023!
Guest Speaker, and 2012 ATHENA Recipient, Rebecca Fleury will discuss the ATHENA tenet, "Foster Collaboration": Value the gifts each individual brings, with a perspective that is global and a spirit that is inclusive; deepen understanding, awareness, and knowledge through diversity; encourage participation from those that are often overlooked. Leaders welcome others to the work of leadership.
