The Athenas is an online community of female identified and non-binary people who have left, or are considering leaving the academic world.

This Patreon is here to support that community and in particular to help us launch a new project we're calling Ask the Athenas. It'll be an advice column for folks considering leaving academia by people who have been there.

Wanna help out?
(You're welcome to BOTH ask a question AND to be an expert!)

If you pledge any amount over $1 a month to this Patreon, you'll get to read Ask the Athenas before it's put into the public! Woohoo! Plus you'll get to chat with me about upcoming questions and get a backstage peek into what I'm setting up for the Athenas. Webinars! Running the slack! Mentorship! You name it, we'll create it.

Any amount you're willing to offer will help us to defray the costs of running this community and to thank those who do work on our behalf. If you're here, you probably know how hard this transition out of the academy can be and how much a few supportive words can help. My goal here is to find more and more ways to support folks who need it and to use the wisdom of those who have left to be that support.

It's never required that you give money to be in the Athenas community, but if you're willing we're very grateful for your support.

*Hopefully it's not confusing but the tiers names were just meant in fun. I am not actually able to give you coffee/lattes/lunch/dinner, but wouldn't it be a blast if we could?

Tiers
A Cup of Joe
$1 or more per month

You're the awesome, responsible type who puts a buck in the jar when there's a communal coffee pot. Thanks for helping out! We're grateful for your support! 

An Extra Large Coffee
$2 or more per month

Sometimes you need a large coffee, make it two (or let's be honest three?) times the size of a regular. So you throw a bit extra into the communal fund. Love it! We're grateful! 

A Latte
$5 or more per month

You decided to pick up the tab after I ordered a fancy artisinal, hand crafted latte. You're so sweet like that. Thank you! 

A Cocktail/Mocktail
$10 or more per month

You're willing to spring for one of those frilly drinks that has an umbrella in it? And fruit, on a stick? Wow, I'm so grateful! 

Tea Time
$15 or more per month

OMIGOSH Tea + sandwiches + scones w/ clotted cream! What fun to wear cool hats and pretend I know the difference between devonshire and clotted cream. SO grateful for your support! 

Dinner
$30 or more per month

You wanna pitch in for some dinner? That's so generous of you! What should we do? Thai? Pizza? Hot wings? Thank you! 

Four Course Dinner
$50 or more per month

So generous of you to pick up the tab! I'm really grateful for your ongoing support of women and gender minorities who are making a shifts out of the academy. A big huge thank you!
