Professional organizations across the region nominate outstanding women who best embody the goddess Athena, who is known for her strength, courage, wisdom and enlightenment, but most of all for her generosity.

The Nashville ATHENA Award Program honors business and professional women for their career successes, service to community, and encouragement of women. It seeks to inspire others to achieve excellence in their professional and personal lives.

The complete list of the 2012 nominees can be found at the Nashville ATHENA Award program website. The organization also may be found on Twitter at @ATHENA_Award.

The 2012 recipient will be named Monday, March 26, 2012, at a gala at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

The ATHENA Award Program came to Nashville in 1990, through the collaborative effort of local women’s organizations and in partnership with local businesses and individual sponsors. Since the program’s inception in Lansing, Michigan in 1982, more than 5,000 sculptures have been presented to outstanding women in more than 500 communities in the United States and around the world. In 1995, operation of the Program transferred to Nashville CABLE Foundation’s 501(C)(3), pursuant to a license from ATHENA International.
