FireEye and Athena Alliance Partner to Support Women Leaders in Cyber Security

MILPITAS, Calif. – July 7, 2020 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced its strategic partnership with Athena Alliance – an organization dedicated to helping women advance as senior leaders and attain board seats – to support women cyber security leaders in attaining executive roles and board seats.

FireEye introduced Elevate, a program focused on helping to elevate women in cyber security into leadership positions, at the company’s most recent Cyber Defense Summit in October 2019. Today, the Elevate community includes hundreds of women leaders at the Director level and above across the cyber security industry.

Through this new partnership, FireEye Elevate community members will be eligible to gain access to Athena’s curated Learning Library, mentorship, exclusive events, and other resources via an exclusive Athena membership discount. These resources are designed to empower members with the knowledge and support they need to secure board seats and advance their careers.

“We’re thrilled to welcome the women of the FireEye Elevate program to our community of the top 10 percent of executive women,” said Coco Brown, Athena Alliance founder and CEO. “Our world-class executive development program and on-demand technology platform have been proven to transform leaders and progress the potential of women at all levels.”  

“As a pioneer member of Athena – and a Board member of a publicly-traded company – I have experienced first-hand the power of being mentored, as well as of mentoring others,” said FireEye EVP and General Counsel Alexa King. “With Elevate and now through our partnership with Athena, I’m so proud of FireEye’s continued investment in diverse and inclusive leadership to shape the future of the cyber security industry.”


FireEye is a leader in supporting women in technology, hosting a number of meetings and events and organizing employee programs. Additional details about FireEye efforts in support of women leaders, including the various aspects of Athena Alliance membership, can be found on the FireEye Elevate page at as well as in today’s blog post.

All are welcome to register for an upcoming webinar slated for July 22 regarding leadership and corporate boards of directors, co-hosted by Alexa King and Coco Brown.
