Athena Erie is helping women make a difference in their own lives and the community. 

Athena Erie Women’s Leadership Luncheon brought together more than 290 professional women today to support, develop, and honor leadership.  Among them, 40 leaders like Erie County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper and former Erie Mayor Joyce Savocchio, who shared their experiences with guests.

Founder and Chair of Athena Erie, Linda Stevenson, says they talked about, “How did we get there? What did it take and what are some of the tricks? So, we can help our future women leaders to grow into the leaders that’ll change our community in a significant way.”

Athena Erie also presented a two-week scholarship to a student to sail and learn on the Brig Niagara.
