Our team helps individuals and leaders tap into their inner wisdom, become aware of patterns and biases, and continually evolve and learn.
We take a whole-systems approach to helping organizations adapt to rapid and complex change, to continually improve, and to embrace diversity, equity, and belonging.
We help communities create inclusive public policy by hosting difficult conversations with divergent viewpoints, centering the voices of those most impacted.
The Athena Group helps to create a world where economic prosperity for all is inevitable and where social equity and environmental responsibility are local and global priorities.
We believe that change begins from inside and manifests itself in organizations and communities.
The Athena Group mission is to awaken leadership potential in everyone, to build healthy organizations that are productive while energizing humans to be their full selves, and to lay the foundation for resilient and inclusive communities.
The Athena Group, LLC is a women and minority owned for purpose consulting enterprise, headquartered on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish, specifically the Nisqually and Squaxin Island people–otherwise known as Olympia, WA.
The Athena Group has served over 250 clients through successful completion of 600+ contracts in state, regional and local governments, as well as business and community-based organizations since our founding in 1999.
The city and county engaged The Athena Group to help them facilitate a community-driven strategic planning process on homelessness. To do this, The Athena Group’s project partners designed and facilitated a process that ultimately enabled a diverse group of community members and leaders—the Planning and Action Team on Homelessness (PATH)—to find the best way forward for themselves, in light of all interests and perspectives in the community.
The Athena Group provided facilitation and other forms of professional consultation to support a better understanding of its current business practices and staff resources related to its goals. The Unit also has a new organizational chart, including reporting lines and high-level position descriptions.
