Criteria for Nominations

Nominations for Anchorage ATHENA Society members are solicited from the community at large. Inductees are selected based on the recognition of their outstanding leadership and excellence in their business or profession, their community service outside of job requirements and that they are known for assisting women to reach their full leadership potential. They must also work in Anchorage. The nominations are screened by a selection committee comprised of past award Recipients.

2022 Nominations are CLOSED.

2022 Luncheon

It’s 2022 – a new year with new ambitions and hopes for moving forward in these pandemic times. For three decades, the local ATHENA chapter has worked, with the backing of the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce,  to encourage the potential of all women as valued members and leaders of our Anchorage Community.  Our signature event is the recognition of those who meet this standard by inducting these leaders into the Anchorage ATHENA Society. Due to COVID, we did not select a class for 2021 but we are this year determined not to let it define us.

Our traditional luncheon will be held between 11:30 and 1 pm on Monday, March 21st at the Dena’ina Center. Tickets are $50 per person; tables of  10 people are $500 and can be purchased on the Chamber website.  Should future COVID outbreaks require the event to be cancelled or moved to a Zoom event, ticket money will be refunded.

UPDATE: Ticket sales are closed as we are sold out. If you are an ATHENA please contact for seating. 

As the COVID numbers are going down, all protocols have been removed. Masks are encouraged but not mandated.
