Athena Racing CEO & Founder Wins Pinnacle Award

The Pinnacle Awards is a staple of southern California’s technology and science industries, showcasing the best in class of individuals advancing women in STEM. In its 23rd year, Loxley Browne, CEO and founder of Athena Racing, is the recipient of the Pinnacle Award as Service Provider in 2021.

Over 600 leaders in science, technology and business gathered to honor those excelling in the recognition, promotion and mentorship of women in STEM.

“At Athena Racing we are building a community of like-minded, STEM-loving girls who work together and support each other,” said Loxley Browne. “Our ultimate goal is to see them succeed as team members working together for the companies that are creating change in our world – such as Virgin Galactic, SpaceX, Boring Company, Tesla, GM, and Ford – to allow Athenians to rise together as our future female leaders. I am honored to be the one chosen in 2021 who represents the advancement of girls and women in STEM. To have persevered through the global pandemic as a new non-profit and to change the lives of young girls as we have is an incredible feat. Our 100-year plan will demolish the status quo and drive change that brings the best and brightest – women and men – to the table to work together.”

While Athena Racing is a STEM Education Program training girls in grades 6-12 in the essential life skills and career development focusing on engineering, design, technology and robotics in the automotive and transportation industries, Athena is a premier women’s advocacy organization that fast tracks women in STEM through leadership development. By transforming scientists and technologists into corporate leaders, our mission is to widen the bridge to advance 1 million women in STEM, by 2030. Its 20+ year history of advancing women in a global STEM hub marks Athena as a premier women’s empowerment advocate. Founded in 1998, Athena members feature executives, aspiring leaders, entrepreneurs, and academia from all sectors of life sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics, healthcare, defense, as well as the associated service provided.

“These nominees and winners certainly have a lot to be proud of and this event reminds us of the lives impacted when we intentionally climb as one,” said Athena CEO Holly Smithson. “And it’s those shared values that magnify our power to continue driving sustainable outcomes.”
