The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce will celebrate the 11 women chosen as finalists for its prestigious ATHENA Awards at a luncheon from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Arizona Biltmore, 2400 E. Missouri Ave.
The ATHENA Businesswoman of the Year Award recognizes a woman in the public and private sector, in addition to highlighting an upcoming leader in the Valley as an ATHENA Young Professional. ATHENA finalists are chosen for their excellence in business and leadership, dedication to the community and support and mentorship of other women.
The ATHENA Award, a program of the international ATHENA organization founded by Martha Mertz in 1982, supports, develops and honors women leaders and pushes them to reach their full potential by invoking the ideals of the Greek goddess of courage, wisdom, arts and science.
Three ATHENA Award recipients will be announced at the chamber’s 28th Annual ATHENA Awards luncheon. Tickets are $75 for chamber members and $85 for nonmembers.
