Executive Connections

Executive Connections is a program of ATHENA WIN that offers monthly, small group meetings for individuals who are in leadership positions within their organization. Part CEO group, part mentoring circle, part professional development – “Executive Connections” has proven to be an invaluable experience for the women who commit to being part of the program. 
 Executive Connections at a glance:

  • Monthly meetings from February through December.  Most meetings will be a two and half hour discussion led by a trained facilitator.  ATHENA Principles will serve as the topics for monthly meeting with time also allowed for group conversation regarding current issues that members bring forward.
  • Monthly breakfast meetings will take place from 8 AM – 10:30 at the Crowne Plaza Lansing on Tuesday or Thursday.
  • Three combined group excursions designed to learn about organizations, what they are doing to impact their community, and meet with the women in leadership.  2018 planning is underway but past excursions have included local tours of FRIB (East Lansing), Peckman Industries (Lansing), Steelcase (Grand Rapids), The Empowerment Project (Detroit), and Rock Ventures (Detroit)
