WHO WE ARE

ABOUT ATHENA WE
Athena Women Empowered (Athena WE) is a growing registered student organization at UCF, founded in March 2016. We aim to support, develop, and connect female leaders, in order to help them achieve their full potential both professionally and personally.
Our organization is open to all majors, as we are dedicated to developing all collegiate women through workshops, networking events, mentorship opportunities, and various industry speakers.
ABOUT ATHENA INTERNATIONAL
 
Founded in 1982 by Martha Mayhood Mertz, ATHENA International is a non-profit organization that seeks to support, develop and honor women leaders through programs that administer partnership with ‘host organizations’ from local communities.
This program inspires women to reach their full potential and strives to create balance in leadership worldwide. Ms. Mertz was inspired by the Greek goddess Athena, who embodies the “strength, courage, wisdom, and enlightenment” that women leaders possess.
