Signature Series

Building Blocks for Professional Development & Career Advancement

Athena Signature Series events deliver thought provoking programs on a wide variety of relevant topics from local, national and internationally renowned business leaders, experts and entrepreneurs. 

Big ideas are central to Athena's Signature Series and are "must attend" events for anyone who wants to be in-the-know.

Signature Series events are open to members and non-members, as well as co-workers, family members and friends. We love it when men attend our events, and if you have a young person in your life who would benefit from our conferences, bring them too! We are inclusive of everyone.


Past Signature Series Events

Bold Women Discover Their Mojo

This program, “Bold Women Discover their Mojo,” was an interactive workshop to help you create a personal action plan to get your career mojo back! Let's face it, we all get into slumps and often feel stuck in our paths, not knowing the next step to take. Intuit Innovation Catalysts walked small groups through creative tools that will help you identify the highs in your career, activities you can implement in your own career to get you through this slump, and onto the next peak. Veena Nath, product manager at Intuit and a community innovation lead in the San Diego office was the lead presenter at the event.
