Athena’s Founder Named Winner of “Enlightened Employer” Award at the WIE Awards in Berlin

We are thrilled to announce that Athena’s President, Stacy McKay Benander was named the WINNER of the “Enlightened Employer” Award at the 2018 Women in International Education (WIE) Awards Ceremony in Berlin, Germany!

Enlightened Employer Award

The “Enlightened Employer” award is given to the organization that best exhibits its support of women and promotion of gender equality in the workplace.  Award recipients show a creative approach to fostering and empowering women to excel, as well as demonstrating a forward-thinking, proactive, and creative approach to enabling their team members to realize their full potential, as well as creating a positive and inclusive workplace culture which enables employees to excel.

The Berlin Ceremony

The WIE award ceremony was held on November 3 in Berlin, Germany, co-hosted by The Global Leadership League and Lead5050. It was an evening devoted to celebrating the amazing work that women and men are doing in our industry in the name of gender equality, much of which goes largely unnoticed. The keynote speaker at the awards this year was Melissa McCoy, whose words were both inspiring and motivational.

We would like to thank The Global Leadership League and Lead5050 for their support, and send our heartfelt congratulations to all of the other winners and nominees. We hope to see everyone again next year!
