Joining many ATHENA chapters around the globe, the ATHENA Valley of the Sun (AVOS) was formed in 2015 with the focus of supporting women as we evolve from leadership at the community or grassroots level all the way to the governing Board of Directors.

AVOS offers the opportunity to experience extraordinary women as role models that exist in each of us. Our purpose is to provide opportunities for sharing stories of overcoming odds, challenging broken systems, taking brave actions, mending polarities or being the calming voice in the shouting of oppositions.

The guiding principles of AVOS are:
Leave no woman leader behind
Show up and be seen as a leader.
Build the next generation of women senior leaders.
