Athenian Moves to Huntsville, AL

BeAthenian.org, an organization dedicated to inspiring the next generation through immersive STREAM education, has announced its strategic move to Huntsville, Alabama. Positioned at the heart of the Tennessee Valley region, Athenian is poised to catapult its growth by tapping into the unparalleled opportunities available in proximity to key players in the automotive and aerospace industries.

The move to Huntsville places BeAthenian.org at the epicenter of innovation, providing easy access to the headquarters of major auto manufacturers, leading rocket manufacturers, Redstone Arsenal, FBI, and NASA. This strategic relocation signifies the company’s commitment to building a robust footprint that extends across Huntsville, Atlanta, and Nashville—cities renowned for high-tech landscapes and dynamic communities.

BeAthenian.org’s mission is to put young girls in the driver’s seat to explore careers and develop skills needed in the transportation sector – everything from racecars to rockets – offering students an unparalleled journey through the world of STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). With a focus on growth and scaling, the organization aims to inspire and prepare the workforce of the future, aligning with the high-tech families who have relocated to the Tennessee Valley region to work for cutting-edge companies.

“At BeAthenian.org, we believe in nurturing curiosity and fostering innovation. The move to Huntsville marks a pivotal moment in our journey, allowing us to leverage the incredible resources and expertise available in this region,” said Loxley Browne, founder & CEO of Athenian. “We are excited to collaborate with the exceptional companies in the Tennessee Valley and surrounding areas to inspire the next generation of engineers, scientists, and innovators.”

Central to Athenian’s mission is a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. The organization recognizes the importance of empowering young women to pursue high-income career fields in STREAM. BeAthenian.org aims to provide training and support to middle school and high school female students, fostering an environment where they can thrive and excel in traditionally male-dominated industries.

As Athenian embarks on this new chapter, the organization remains dedicated to its core values of inspiring curiosity, promoting STREAM education, and contributing to the growth of a diverse and inclusive workforce. The move to Huntsville signifies not only a geographical expansion, but also a commitment to making a lasting impact on the future of STEM education in the region.
