Athena Awards – The Impact of One Woman



“Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.” – Unknown

WRL Art Director, Tracy Arenson believes this couldn’t be more true for the Greater Stark County Athena International Awards. In 2015, she chaired this program and is honored to be a part of the organization’s effort once again as the Nominations Chair for the upcoming 2017 ATHENA Awards, presented by Women’s Impact Inc.“It was an opportunity I will never forget,” said Tracy. “To work with such an influential group of women and to be able to hear all of their encouraging stories firsthand was truly inspiring.”

The ATHENA Awards Program® began in 1982 to recognize exceptional woman leaders who demonstrate the highest levels of professional excellence and give back to their communities. Most importantly, it looks to promote their mission of assisting other women in realizing their full leadership potential. They have since expanded the award programs to include the ATHENA Young Professional Leadership Award and the ATHENA Organizational Award to recognize emerging leaders and organizations that value ATHENA’s mission. “I am so proud to be involved with Women’s Impact Inc., an organization that encourages growth and success for women in our community. I’m very grateful that these women have put their trust in me to, once again, be involved in this wonderful event. I couldn’t be more excited to meet and work with a new class of nominees!”

ATHENA says that simply to be an inspiring presence among women in our community is to win. For that reason, Tracy and these many amazing women have already won.
