“Our History is our Strength, Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business” was the theme for National Women’s History Month. The 2017 theme honored women who have successfully challenged the role of women both personally and in the work force. In the Lehigh Valley, we are incredibly blessed to have many women who have made their mark in their work and in the community. They have served selflessly as community leaders and volunteers, connectors, sponsors and mentors. They have shared their experiences with the next generation of leaders and have offered guidance and advice when needed.
In October, the Women’s Business Council is proud to honor two deserving Women with the ATHENA Leadership Award and the Young Professional Leadership Award. These women demonstrate the attributes listed, serve as role models and actively assist other women in the attainments of professional excellence and leadership.
The ATHENA Organizational Leadership Award recognizes businesses and organizations that support develop and honor women leaders. These companies create a culture that encourages women employees to achieve their full leadership potential.
Consider nominating a women leaders that has made a difference in your life. Nominations are now being accepted for our 2017 ATHENA Award Program, for additional information, please contact Danielle Joseph.
