Visit the Athena website to see a sampling of members, learn more about the group's success, watch video testimonials, take a self-assessment and apply. Be sure to indicate Watermark on your application.

“The Athena Alliance continually identifies the best few women to put forward. Their credibility in this regard enhances my ability to serve my network in the same way and ensures I will continue to turn to Athena as new opportunities arise." – Ann Winblad, Managing Director, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, Board Director, MuleSoft, Sonatype, Ace Metrix, Optimine

“The Athena Alliance is tireless in its mission to bring valuable opportunities and indispensable resources to its membership. There are only actions and results – from matching me to stimulating board roles, promoting my company and my profile among industry leaders, to helping me make the most important business connections. When I think of any organization that is a must to be a part of, I first think of The Athena Alliance.”  – Caroline Tsay, Board Director of Morningstar, Rosetta Stone and Travelzoo, CEO of an enterprise software startup and former VP & GM of Software at Hewlett Packard Enterprise

"Sourcing world-class board members is a tough challenge for a startup. Typically, our options are limited to going through our existing board, or personal networks. Athena opened up a new channel for us, and allowed us to meet incredibly talented and driven women execs who were board ready. I could not recommend Athena more strongly if sourcing world class women leaders for your board is important to you." – Lawrence Coburn - CEO of DoubleDutch
