Athena Awards

Award honors best in leadership, giving
Introduced to Rochester in 1987 by the Women's Council, an affiliate organization of the Rochester Business Alliance, the Athena Award recognizes women who strive toward the highest levels of personal and professional accomplishment, who excel in their chosen fields, devote time and energy to their community in a meaningful way and forge paths of leadership for other women to follow. The award fosters awareness of the valuable contributions made by business and professional women to the quality of life in our community. When women of achievement are recognized, doors remain open for all women and opportunities for them continue to grow.

This program is a celebration of excellence and recognition of the leadership roles of women in the workplace and in the community. As such, the Athena program has no winners or losers. Every woman offers unique value to the business world, to her community and to other women.
