Sheryl Sandburg, the COO of Facebook, is considered one of the most powerful and successful women in the U.S. She is ranked on Fortune’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. Her bestselling book, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled and suggests that women are often responsible for holding themselves back in the workplace. This book explains the root causes of why women aren’t leaning in and offers solutions.
Join facilitator Alice Osborn to create our own FemCity Raleigh Lean In Circle and be an active part of this national conversation. Over the course of this evening we’ll get to know each other, laugh and learn if Sheryl Sandburg’s solutions can help empower women to reach their full potential at home and at work. Alice is an author, editor and mom of two school-age kids and has a decade of experience leading book discussions.
