Global & National ATHENA® Leadership Awards
Supporting, Honoring and Developing Women Leaders
In 1994, the ATHENA
International Board of Directors
established the Global ATHENA Leadership Award to be presented annually at the ATHENA International Leadership Summit and to honor women whose body of work has had a national or global impact. In 2012 ATHENA International partnered with local ATHENA Award Program communities to honor Global and National ATHENA Leadership Award Recipients at their celebrations, beginning with Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Phoenix, AZ (National Recipient) and Former University of Tennessee women's basketball Head Coach Pat Summitt in Nashville, TN (Global Recipient).

recognized by local communities during a particular year, but rather are
