About Athena Comms

Queer-affirming. Intersectional. Disabled-owned.

Who We Are

Athena Communications & Research is a queer and disabled-owned (OKU-owned) full-service, social impact communications consultancy that helps organizations, nonprofits, activists, and policymakers deliver on-point messaging and achieve their communication goals that align with their values.

Our firm specializes in human rights-related communications and research work, with a particular focus on women’s, gender and LGBTQIA+ issues in Asia.

Upholding human rights is at the heart of why we do what we do, and with our combined experience in the corporate and non-profit sectors, we help clients craft more effective messaging that also takes into account factors like gender and diversity-sensitive wording.

Our work ethics and ethos are guided by feminist principles – equality, equity, justice, transparency, and humanity.
