Women's Council Vice President Wende Knapp discussed the new ATHENA Young Professional Award Friday on News 8 at Sunrise.
The new award is modeled after the longstanding ATHENA Award, and recognizes emerging leaders in the 30 to 45 year old range who demonstrate excellence, creativity, and initiative in their business or profession. Knapp said recipients will also demonstrate a willingness to serve as a role model for young women both personally and professionally.
The nomination deadline is October 6. Only online submissions will be accepted. Visit the Women's Council web site, click here.
