The Greenville Chamber will host the eighth annual ATHENA Leadership Symposium on Tuesday, November 12th at Greenville Convention Center from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Headlining the event is Susan Credle, Global Chief Creative Officer at FCB. This program is held each year to share best practices for advancing women’s leadership and corporate board service.

The ATHENA Leadership Symposium equips Greenville’s business community with the knowledge and resources needed to create greater gender balance in senior-level positions. The program is inspired by recipients of the Greenville Chamber’s ATHENA Leadership Award®, an award presented each year to a local leader who has made significant strides in assisting women in achieving their full leadership potential.

“As we build a world-class business community, it is imperative that we start by leading world-class, inclusive organizations. We take great pride in equipping organizations with the knowledge and tools necessary to accomplishing this,” says Carlos Phillips, Greenville Chamber President & CEO.

As FCB’s Global Chief Creative Officer, Susan Credle heads up the agency’s creative product and reputation. She is one of the industry’s leading creatives and an important voice representing women. Named one of Ad Age’s “100 Most Influential Women” and chairwoman of the Board of Directors for The One Club for Creativity, Susan has shaped the industry over her more than 30-year career with trailblazing creative ideas, spearheading some of advertising’s most memorable hits – such as M&M’S “Human” and Allstate’s “Mayhem” campaigns.

“It’s an honor to come back home and speak about leadership in the work place,” says Susan. “I have learned a lot over the past 3 decades and look forward to sharing the good and the bad. But it’s mostly good!”
