Athena’s President Shortlisted for the 2018 WIE Awards

We are thrilled to announce that Athena’s Founder, Stacy McKay Benander, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2018 Women In International Education (WIE) “Enlightened Employer” Award.

This nomination recognizes the forward-thinking, proactive and creative approach of employers to enabling women to realize their full potential. Through so many of her contributions and initiatives both here at Athena, as well as those that impact the international education field as a whole (too many to name!), Stacy has always shown an exceptional commitment to gender equality and support of women and other under represented groups.  We are so thankful and humbled that she, and Athena, have been recognized in this way.

The Women in International Education Awards ceremony will take place in Berlin,Germany on November 3, 2018, co-hosted by Lead5050 and The Global Leadership League.  The evening is devoted to celebrating the amazing work that women and men are doing in our industry of international education in the name of gender equality, much of which goes largely unnoticed.

We’d like to send a huge congratulations to all of the other finalists, as well as all of the people who give back every day to make our field the best in the world!
