• ATHENA Leadership Awards

    The ATHENA Leadership Award is presented to a woman, or man, who is honored for attaining professional excellence, community service and for actively assisting women in their achievement of professional excellence and leadership skills. The Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce hosts an annual awards luncheon to honor an experienced professional for the Leadership Award and to recognize a newer "Emerging" Professional Leader already demonstrating many of these same characteristics of leadership and service.

    We welcome nominations from our community - click here to download a nomination form.

    The deadline to submit a nomination is Wednesday, August 28th at 12 noon.
