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