Event Details

Sheryl Sandberg offers compelling insight into why men still hold the overwhelming majority of leadership positions in industry and government, despite over 50% of college graduates being women. She offers pragmatic advice for women on how to meet career challenges as they seek to achieve their full potential. Sheryl Sandberg is the CEO of Facebook and is one of Fortune’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Business. In Lean In, she offers insight into …

• Why we have too few women leaders

• Twenty-first century issues for career women

• Why having more women in leadership roles is good for both business and society

• Practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentoring, and building a satisfying career

• And much more…

 

This SWE event will review Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In and the pragmatic advice for women on how to meet career challenges for women in the workplace. We will discuss the internal and institutional forces that hold women back; urge each other to set boundaries, instead of trying to have it all; and encourage each other to seek challenges, take risks, and pursue our goals with gusto.
