Fierce Women are dynamic, confident, and kind. Fierce Women are accomplished leaders who mentor, and who are actively engaged in their communities. Fierce Women are connecting to, and supporting, the next generation of Fierce Women.
"My vision for the project is to celebrate dynamic, successful women leaders, and also foster community and mentoring. FierceWomenProject provides a unique platform -- online and in the physical world -- for women leaders to share their stories, and for young women and girls to be inspired, empowered, and engaged."

"The Fierce Women Project, for me, is a motivating and gracious reminder to always pay it forward; to keep the fire burning that was once ignited within me by an extraordinary woman that identified my ability, invested in me and brought visibility to what I could not see, so that I too, could pass the light along." - Amelia Papapetropoulos, business owner and 2014 ATHENA Young Professional Award recipient
"Too often we focus on our challenges as female leaders; Fierce Women is about recognizing and celebrating our successes, and through that it inspires all of us to dream bigger and execute more brilliantly than we could ever imagine alone," - Christy Uffelman, Partner at Align Leadership and 2012 ATHENA Young Professional Award recipient
