We believe in Giving Back and Paying it Forward.

A community created by community.

Find what you need here… or let’s build it, in this inclusive, collaborative, supportive community of spectacular women

In Athena Village we celebrate that women are multi-faceted, wear many hats and juggle several spinning plates. Because of that, we focus on WHO we are before what we DO.

We have 7 districts in the Village dedicated to being a whole woman of the 21st Century.  You may join the Village to take steps to further your career, but find yourself coming back for the camaraderie and connections you’re making.

We’ve designed a tool – Our Village Wheel – for you to think about your life and where you’d like to enhance it.

The questions will help you identify your areas of interest and where you would like more guidance.  And your ratings will help us guide you once your join the Village to get the most out of your membership. Click below to access the Village Wheel.

Why Athena Village

The [Village provides an] opportunity to be your truest, most authentic self without judgment. All ideas matter, and are relevant to the conversation... The openness to learn and unlearn as a collective. Yes. Yes. And that transcends race. To learn and unlearn.

"I love Athena Village because of the heart-centered leadership and the women that make upe up the community. I REALLY appreciate the depth of the intntionaliity of creating and upholding the values and culture of the community."

Stories | Questions | Conversations

We are artists, authors, coaches, healers, makers, teachers, and entrepreneurs gathering to connect through authentic stories, thoughtful questions & soulful conversations.

  • Want a quiet place away from the chaos, vitriol, and perfection of social media?
  • A place without the prying eyes of traditional social channels that use what you share to sell and market to you incessantly?
  • Are you losing connections because your people getting fed up with those channels?

Consider joining Athena Village, away from the noise.

We believe the internet is an amazing tool. Let’s use it in a way that serves us but doesn’t overwhelm, annoy, & definitely doesn’t track us!

Engage at the level comfortable for you. Set notifications to your individual rhythms, so you’re contacted only as much – or as little – as you’d like.

Athena Village is a community dynamically created by the community. Each of us is a work in progress, on our own unique journey. We make mistakes. We listen.  We’re committed to respecting those individual journeys while learning and responding as a collective community. We believe learning and growing together is the way to create the world we want to live in.  Athena Village is committed to helping our members thrive.

If you recognize yourself in the description above contact founder, Kelly Pratt or schedule a curiosity conversation to learn how Athena Village partners with our Village Collective Members to help you grow.

Join as a Villager

Athena Village is a women-led collective of some of the best, most inspiring, forward-thinking, fun, and creative women leaders together in one place. (Should I add humble to the list 😉)

Our private online community is for like-valued women (and men) who crave connection, collaboration, and creativity -and who never want to stop learning.

What makes this community different:

When we’re all hanging out in the HOME feed–which we call the “Village Square” – we’re all just women who’ve been where you are. We’re having conversations. Sharing experiences.

NO SHOULD-ING

No one’s “should-ing” on you.  We avoid the word “should” and that’s a hard habit to break! (hmm maybe we have a “should jar? 🤔) We stay away from the “MY way is THE way” thing. Instead we recognize that each of us has our own unique “creative rhythm” and recognize what works for us.  And trial and error is sometimes the way to find that.

WINDOW SHOPPING

You don’t have to join a bunch of different online communities – or feel like you have to choose just one – this can be your go-to community for learning, creating, ideas, and collaboration among people who share your values – but not necessarily like-minded. We may have different 💡 ideas, and that’s where the conversations get good!

WHO WE ARE

Founder Kelly Pratt, cocreator joy agcongay, and all of our Collective Members believe, like many around the world, that the world will be a better place when the values traditionally associated with women are more prevalent among our leaders and organizations. To make that happen we need to support each other.

We are a diverse group. We’re mostly women. Some own businesses and some have jobs. Single, partnered, or married. Some of us are starting out, some reinventing, and some looking at retirement.

Whatever stage, age, or situation, we’re all curious women with dreams and ideas. This dynamic and growing community – Athena Village – is for all of us. A place to have important conversations, to create “circular mentorships” and most importantly, to have fun!

Throughout my years of working with women, I’ve been reminded over and over that we are great at shining the light on others while forgetting to illuminate ourselves. We do this as sisters, moms, and partners.  We do this in our professional lives and in our communities.  And, we tend to leave our own “essential coolness,” our mojo on the shelf, or worse, forget where we put it or even remember what “it” is!

It’s mojo. It’s cool.  It’s the essence of “who you are at your core.” Ladies, we are natural leaders. We have mojo.
– Kelly Pratt, Athena Village founder

It says in  *BECOMING ATHENA

“…women’s natural leadership style is “… not codified in business schools or mandated in corporate manuals; [it is] … drawn, unselfconsciously, from centuries-old practices learned at grandmothers’ knees… so second-nature that… the principles went with them, shaping and guiding all they did.” – Martha Mertz

And in THE ATHENA DOCTRINE, the authors found that 64,000 people in 13 countries believed the world will be a better place if our leaders emphasized “cooperation, communication, and sharing.”

This is what Athena Village is all about. You’re invited to join us!

Or explore Collective Membership

A thriving Village has a vibrant marketplace.

We’re inviting you to set up shop in the Village.  It can be a “pop up” shop that gives our members a taste of what you do in your main headquarters, or this can become your primary place where you do your selling – totally up to you!

As a collective Member, you can “lease” a Space in the Village and set it up how it best serves you and your clients or customers.

  • Are you a teacher?  Let’s set up an online classroom!
  • Are you a coach?  You can create a space for your group or individual coaching practice.
  • Are you an artist?  Let’s create a gateway for your market and a place for you to talk about your work and host creative sessions!

You choose which District best encompasses your mission. And you can do events and courses in any of the Districts.
