The ATHENA Leadership Model is the philosophy and framework for everything we do. The eight principles of leadership that it sets out are proven, specific and actionable. With immense gratitude, we believe that it will be through leaders, who intentionally embrace and develop their capacity to lead, that our next generation will learn to live by the following principles:

  • LIVING AUTHENTICALLY and LEARNING CONSTANTLY focus on how ATHENA leaders understand and develop themselves
  • BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS and FOSTERING COLLABORATION focus on how ATHENA leaders embrace and encourage others
  • ACTING COURAGEOUSLY and ADVOCATING FIERCELY align with how ATHENA leaders live out their convictions
  • GIVING BACK and CELEBRATING demonstrate how ATHENA leaders contribute to their communities and memorialize shared experiences
