Community for Female-Identified Post Academics



Community for female identified people who have Left the academy

After I left my tenure track position at a university, I began to have coffee with women who had left the academy and realized how many were suffering from a great deal of pain because of their choice to leave.

Often these women have faced toxic work environments, culturally encoded racism and sexism as well as a chronic loss of self-esteem and sense of self worth.  

So I created The Athenas, an online community as a place to connect with other women who understand and to start the process of recovering.  Sure, we offer resources, but more than that, we offer a whole community of women who understand what it's like to leave and know how much the world needs your skills, capacity and wisdom.
