Women's Leadership Conference

Athena collaborates every other year with the University of Idaho Women's Center and Professional Development and Learning to plan the Women's Leadership Conference. The Women's Leadership Conference invites all women in higher education – students, staff and faculty - to convene to celebrate our differences and create an empowered campus community more inclusive of women as a group, irrespective of gender identification, sexual orientation, religion, race, ethnicity, ability, or socioeconomic background. The next Women's Leadership Conference will be held on the University of Idaho campus in the spring of 2015. If you would like to participate in the planning committee, please email
