Your Athena profile plays a critical role in connecting to the broader Athena community. Athena members search for each other based on keywords, industry, role, and more. Completing your profile ensures you can be discovered by other members. But it also ensures that Athena can discover you for career opportunities like board seats, exclusive events, networking opportunities with other members, and so much more.

By completing your profile, this will increase the Profile Completion percentage on your Dashboard and allow us to make better recommendations for you. We understand you may not be able to fill out every profile field, and consider a profile completion percentage of 80% or above to be very good.

Your profile helps us understand what you’re all about. The private section of your profile is the area that is most important when it comes to mapping you to opportunities and to each other - the information entered here factors into your opportunity match percentages based on how the opportunities have been tagged, and is used in the search filters in the member directory.

Updating Your Profile

It is important to keep you profile information up-to-date because it's what we use to customize and enhance your experience, including connecting you with other members and opportunities. If your organization, title, or skills change, please update all relevant information immediately.

Formatting Issues

If you’re experiencing formatting issues with your profile Summary and/or Bio, this is likely due to copying and pasting information from documents with formatting that isn’t compatible with your Athena profile. For example, if you copy the information from a resume with bullet points and paste it into your profile, this will cause formatting issues. The same thing often happens if you copy from a webpage and then paste into a Word doc - the formatting looks off.

To resolve this, first copy/paste as plain text into a Word doc to remove any html/formatting, and then copy again and paste into your profile.

Member Profile Visibility

Other Athena members will only be able to see your Name, Profile Photo, and the information you provide in the 'Public Profile' section of your member profile. Members cannot view your attached documents or anything that you include in the section labeled 'Private Profile'.

For details, navigate to your personal profile from the icon in the top right corner, and click on 'Edit Profile'. There, you will be able to view and edit all of your personal information.

All member profiles require logged in access to in order to view. Your profile is not visible to external search engines, and will only appear to other Athena members within the site’s search function.
