“We are here to hear”

The mission of Woman of Achievement is to recognize & develop women leaders in their communities. We host two signature events for women: The International Woman of Achievement Leadership Weekend inviting women from cultures worldwide to present women’s issues they face in their home countries as well as a U.S. Leadership Weekend to do the same. These annual events include the pageantry of presenting cultural wisdom in indigenous costume, speaking or sharing of performing arts or mixed media, personal interviews, and various workshops. Both events culminate in cash grants to women demonstrating outstanding contribution in community service, academic achievement & the arts.

What is Woman of Achievement?

Acknowledging the Beauty in Service, Self-Development and Education Among Today’s Modern Woman.

Marlena Martin

CEO – Woman of Achievement

Because Woman of Achievement offers a creative space for women to solve problems and present their non-profits and entrepreneurial exploits, I am often asked “Do YOU have a platform”? YES! My community platforms are as follows:

  1. Supporting the “Family Unit” which is the backbone to any society;
  2. Ensuring Native Americans here in the U.S. and other indigenous cultures in general are heard, honored and respected;
  3. Keeping our oceans clean and plastic free! When I see trash and plastic wash up in Long Beach, Greece, or any other place I’m visiting, I can’t relax, I end up cleaning the beach! We, in our own part of the world, can make sure every effort is employed in keeping our oceans pollution and plastic free. The planet is wonderfully beautiful and it is up to us to protect it.
