CURRENT BOOK: “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead” by Sheryl Sandberg

DISCUSSION DATE: Tuesday October 27, 2020 at 4:00 pm EDT

“In response to Sheryl’s 2010 TEDTalk on the ways women are held back—and the way we hold ourselves back—viewers around the world shared their own stories of struggle and success. This overwhelming response inspired Sheryl to write this book. In Lean In, she shares her personal stories, uses research to shine a light on gender differences, and offers practical advice to help women achieve their goals. The book challenges us to change the conversation from what women can’t do to what we can do, and serves as a rallying cry for us to work together to create a more equal world.”
