Athena Center – Women Wisdom

Mission

The Athena Center - Women Wisdom with founder Simone Junod has set itself the goal of contributing to more humanity and collective wisdom in the world and promoting a society in which the well-being of all, respect, appreciation and compassion are the basis of our actions. This requires a high level of social competence, insight and inner orientation.

The technological revolution is permanently and profoundly changing our society. In the disruptive transformation of the world, female wisdom plays a central role - for example in the form of compassion, social intelligence, emotions, love, mindfulness, empathy, integration or appreciation. The psychologist and Sufi teacher Lewellyn Vaughan Lee says: "Nothing new can come into life without the participation of the feminine. Every woman has the potential of creation needed for the renewal of life. In many societies of the world, it is women who set the decisive impulses for more empathy, a deepened attitude towards values, more common good, solidarity and collective wisdom.

Men and women both possess these feminine qualities; they lead us deep into our innermost being, to the core of our being, whose wisdom is called "Sophia".

Based on this knowledge, Athena Center - Women Wisdom aims to inspire and empower women and men as leaders and influencer change agents for a sustainable world.

Vision

The actions of each person are fully recognized and valued - for the good of humanity and the earth. Our vision is to connect and network individuals and organizations into a global movement of collective wisdom.

Assignment

“We believe that the world, including the private sector, would benefit by focusing on the large economic opportunity of improving parity between men and women” states McKinsey Global Institute.

We share this view and thus the Athena Center - Women Wisdom aims to inspire and encourage women and men to inspire conscious, energetic and powerful organizations to support the further development of society towards more mindfulness, integration, empathy and diversity while also assuming responsibility in leadership roles.

One of our concrete goals is to promote the positive development of the proportion of women in the management of companies. In general, women should be encouraged to realise their full potential and take their place in society in a self-confident, authentic and sustainable manner.

Athena Center - Women Wisdom plans workshops, seminars, retreats, coaching, well-being & recreation, networking, talks & events.

Statement

Athena Center - Women Wisdom sees itself as a neutral, non-confessional and independent institution.

Founder & CEO Athena Center - Women Wisdom

Simone Junod is founder and CEO of Athena Center - Women Wisdom (in foundation).

Her experience in leadership positions and working in a global, multicultural environment have led Simone Junod to believe that a globally networked society in a digital economy needs a new understanding of fundamental values. This requires a high level of social competence, insights and an inner orientation.

Female intuition and wisdom should be encouraged in order to give impulses for the further development of society and to contribute to a harmonious coexistence in all areas of life. A look at history shows that women in the social and family environment have a natural role model role in the task of building binding social and responsible networks and shaping them in a value-oriented manner through their experiences as mothers and family managers.

As Business Economist HWV, Simone Junod held various executive positions, including Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Member of the Executive Board and Senior Executive in Swiss units of international groups (IT, watch industry, sports, engineering & manufacturing) and as International Financial Controller in the IT and machine industry. In addition to her business studies, she trained as a Systemic Management & Business Coach at the Coachakademie Schweiz (CAS/ECA), St. Gallen, and completed numerous further training courses in Strategic Finance, Leadership, Personality Development, Communication and Mindfulness & Energy Work.

Meine persönliche Motivation als Gründerin

My personal motivation as a founder

I grew up in the Bernese Jura as the fifth of nine children in a farming family and took on responsibility very early on. I learned from my mother what it means to be a "family manager": a lot of work - organizing the household, raising children, working in the fields at the same time, looking after the vegetable garden, providing a comfortable home - and being in contact with like-minded people, especially women, in a socially acceptable network. This gave us structure, support and safety. The question of a professional career did not arise.

For a long time, my professional career played a major role in my personal life - also as a counter-model to the traditional image of women. I have had success in various management positions at the executive level of international companies in Switzerland. It was an instructive and busy time, in which I was often the only woman to sit on purely male management bodies. Can you imagine how lonely I felt sometimes? To assert myself and make myself heard, to appear credible and professional, to prove again with every job change that I am competent and at the same time look good.

From this experience I have decided to found Athena Center - Women Wisdom. My goal is that women will have it easier on their way in the future than I and other women of my and previous generations. That they develop a deep connection to their inner powers and their female wisdom much earlier, i.e. at the beginning of their career. So that they can go their way strong, confident, authentic, courageous and with integrity, without overadaptation.

My vision is that every woman sets something in motion according to her possibilities. That women, through their charisma and commitment, become change agents and bring about a sustainable change in today's working world - for the benefit of a solidary, humane and value-oriented society that we need more than ever in a digitized future.
