ATHENA Valley of the Sun
The new ATHENA Valley of the Sun chapter will honor American Ambassador Barbara Barrett and other outstanding women business leaders.
“These awards will feature women in our community whose stories deserve to be heard. These are extraordinary leaders who are demonstrating the ATHENA Leadership Principles: Live Authentically; Learn Constantly, Build Relationships; Foster Collaboration; Advocate Fiercely; Act Courageously and Give Back and Celebrate,” says Dr. Kristine Quade, president of ATHENA Valley of the Sun. “ATHENA Valley of the Sun provides a platform for emerging and established women leaders to have deep, inspiring conversations to help them identify, embrace, and realize their aspirations.”
