“An inspiring and powerful book that tells the compelling stories of women leaders, Living ATHENA: The 8 Principles for ATHENA Leadership demonstrates the ability of women to lead with wisdom, grace, and resilience.  Mertz and Prince should be applauded for the passion and care poured into this work.

Martha Mayhood Mertz, a name synonymous with leadership and empowerment, has left an indelible mark on the world with her new book, “Living ATHENA: The 8 Principles of ATHENA leadership.”  Her commitment to fostering women’s potential has illuminated the path for countless women to achieve their full potential. 

This book is a gift to leaders, established and emerging, to anyone eager to embark on a transformative leadership journey.

As I was sitting in a prison cell I learned that there was a program that taught women how to live a better life, never to be imprisoned again. I was given this incredible book called “Becoming ATHENA”.  The author, Martha Mertz, was a huge part of the woman I have become today.  From her influence, a struggling drug addict and alcoholic from a disfunctional family, adopted a new mantra “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
