Why you should attend if you are a woman seeking to advance in your career: In Lean In, Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential.

Why you should attend if you are NOT a woman but are still seeking to advance in your career: If your progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, she explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower you to achieve your full potential. Ok, so while everything may not apply to everyone many issues she writes about can be applied to everyone.

Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and 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. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back.

 

Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women’s voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. Is your voice being heard when important decisions are being made?  If you did not answer yes, you should read this book and attend this discussion.
