This award-winning, all-girls, STEM-education program welcomes new Board Directors focused on leadership and transportation on land, sea and air.

SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Athena Racing announces the addition of two new members to its Board of Directors, as well as the full slate of Officers and Members for 2020. Joining the Board of Directors are Sabrina Reyes Dods and Diane Miller.

“Both Directors embody our goal of driving change and creating opportunities for our future female leaders. They bring incredible talent, expertise, and energy and join us at an exciting time as we enhance our outreach nationally. We are very fortunate to have them by our side as we continue growing our programming to provide free STEM workshops and camps for young girls in school. Their connection to industry has already proven invaluable as we establish exclusive sponsored curriculum that will give our students the inside track to business and career development.”

“I could not be more thrilled to be involved with Athena Racing as an advocate for the involvement of young women in STEM, says newly appointed Director Sabrina Reyes. Even in 2020, women are vastly underrepresented in many STEM communities. In order to increase the female representation, it is vital that organizations like Athena Racing thrive and aim to get girls passionate and involved in STEM at an early age!”

Athena Racing regularly evaluates its board composition to ensure it includes the appropriate skills, experience and perspective necessary to drive growth for all stakeholders, and with these director additions, five directors will have joined Athena Racing’s actively engaged board in the past year. Other Directors include: John Hayes of Dexcom; Hannah Grisham of Pirelli; Sandra Bauler of San Diego Workforce; and Loxley A. Browne of Athena Racing.
