Founded in 1982 by Martha Mayhood Mertz, ATHENA® International is a non-profit organization that seeks to support, develop and honor women leaders. The program inspires women to reach their full potential and strives to create balance in leadership worldwide. Supporting, honoring, and developing women leaders are the foundations of the ATHENA Leadership Model®, developed through a grant from the W.K. Kellogg
Foundation. The model identifies eight distinct attributes that are reflective of women’s
contributions to leadership: Authentic Self, Relationships, Giving Back, Collaboration,
Courageous Acts, Learning, Fierce Advocacy, and Celebration & Joy. These
personal traits combined with the strongest aspects of traditional leadership—taking
risks, assertiveness, and hard work—prepare women to be successful leaders in the 21st
Century. These seven women are recognized for demonstrating these characteristics in their lives.

What Mertz conceived more than a quarter-century ago is now a global movement. Since the program’s inception, more than 7,000 awards have been presented in over 500 communities in eight countries. In a recent ATHENA International Leadership Conference, Martha noted: “Think about Rosa Parks, who from the authenticity of her core, refused once again, to go to the back of the bus. Consider Mother Theresa who expressed her leadership by the touch of her hand, by the healing of her voice, by the power of her presence—always giving hope. These are but two examples, albeit great examples, of women’s ways of leading that have changed the world.” The Rotary Club of Jasper decided that honoring a local woman leader would be a perfect fit with the ATHENA® Mission of “…supporting, developing and honoring women leaders while inspiring women to achieve their full potential while creating balance in leadership worldwide!”
