The ATHENA Leadership Award program recognizes women who consistently live and demonstrate, at the highest level, one or more of the ATHENA Leadership Principles.
To be considered a candidate for an award, the nominee must excel in accordance with an ATHENA Leadership Principle and be of the caliber to serve as a role model and mentor. The expectation is the nominee will be available to mentor an individual within one of the event Sponsors’ organizations for the period of one year.
The nominee will live, work, or influence the East Valley communities (Mesa, Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert or Scottsdale.)
Nominations will be evaluated with considerable attention given to the nominee’s impact resulting from living these principles. Activities in support of political candidates or ballot initiatives will not be considered when evaluating nominees.
