Curiosity. Creativity. Community. Connectivity. FUN
We are a community of women whose combined experience will knock your socks off.
We're creating face to face, connection opportunities - online and in the real world !
Women are great at shining the light on others. And we often forget to illuminate ourselves. We do this as sisters, moms, partners. We do this in our professional lives and our communities.
And as women, we tend to leave our own “essential coolness,” our mojo on the shelf. Or worse, we forget where we put it or even what “it” is!
We know it’s there - that essential coolness, our mojo, our groove.
But it can be elusive after years of doing for and giving to others.
"Ladies, we are natural leaders. The world needs our mojo, our 'essential coolness,' our groove. And it does take a village."
Kelly Pratt, founder Athena Village
In BECOMING ATHENA Martha Mertz states that women’s natural leadership is
“… not codified in business schools or mandated in corporate manuals; [it is] … drawn, unselfconsciously, from centuries-old practices learned at grandmothers’ knees… so second-nature that… the principles went stay them, shaping and guiding all we do.”
Athena Village isn't about experts. We're not gurus. The Village is a carefully gathered group of individuals and women-owned businesses that we can all learn from, here to combine and share what we know.

The online Village is just the beginning... but it's a great online space to start!
The internet is an amazing tool. Let's use it in a way that serves us but doesn't annoy us, and doesn't spy on us!
You engage at the level comfortable for you.
And you can set your notifications so you are pinged only as much - or as little - as you want.
Plus there's even an app... how cool is that!
You don't ever have to go to the usual social sites.
