Advancing Women’s Leadership and Corporate Board Service
Leadership diversity is critical to the achievement of the Chamber’s vision of Greenville becoming an inclusive model community. The Greenville Chamber actively supports talented women and multicultural professionals in our community in achieving leadership positions in greater numbers. Through the Chamber’s association with ATHENA International since 2001, the Chamber has recognized and honored women in leadership with the ATHENA Leadership Award®. This prestigious award is presented at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting to women who have made significant contributions to Greenville in promoting community prosperity and quality of life. The ATHENA Leadership Symposium, a unique women’s leadership program inspired by recipients of the ATHENA Leadership Award® and offered as part of the Chamber’s Diversity and Inclusion initiative is one of multiple opportunities the Chamber executes to advance leadership diversity within underrepresented populations.
