Senomyx Supports Athena San Diego – Women in Science and Technology
You may know Athena as the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice and skill, but Senomyx is involved with another “Athena.” Senomyx employees proudly support Athena San Diego, an organization that promotes professional growth for women executives and rising managers in science and technology. Sectors served include the life sciences, healthcare, defense, engineering, and related industries, as well as the service providers who support these sectors. What started as an informal network became a structured organization by 1998 and today has more than 500 members — all with vision and leadership roles.
At Athena, personal and professional growth is fostered through unique educational and motivational programs that address key issues in these industries. Athena provides networking opportunities that contribute to the vitality of women’s roles in business and nurture upcoming women executives. Athena also supports educators who work to prepare the next generation of women for careers in math, engineering, or science.
Supporting Today’s Students, Tomorrow’s Leaders in Science and Technology
The annual Pinnacle Scholarships are a highlight of Athena’s activities. These merit-based scholarships are awarded to five qualified graduating high school senior women in San Diego County and are presented at the organization’s annual Pinnacle Awards dinner in the spring. Past scholarship winners have been remarkable (awesome and inspiring!) young women whose accomplishments included academic excellence, leadership in school organizations, and community involvement. The application process is described at http://athenasd.org/pinnacle-scholarship/how-to-apply/ for those interested in next year’s scholarship awards.
This type of organization is extremely important to the San Diego Community, which hosts a large population of professionals within the science and technology industries.
