In 2010 the COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, gave this TED talk, “Why we have too few women leaders.”
In 2013, Sandberg has followed this up with a massive program called Lean In, which is all about encouraging and supporting women and their ambitions.
The website has loads of first person stories, educational articles and videos, and an impressive set of resources for building your own Lean In Circle, which is “like a book club focused on helping members achieve their goals”.
Pretty wild. Pretty cool.
If anyone starts a Lean In Circle in Melbourne, I’ll join up!
