Hello SOTGC community,
Based on the popularity and controversy surrounding Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In, we decided this would make a GREAT first topic to kick off the SOTGC Webinar Series. In Lean In, Sheryl 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. However, there are many ways that women can succeed in business and “leaning in” might not be the solution for you. If that’s the case, what are ways that women can succeed without applying the “lean in” mentality?
When: Thursday March 27, 2014 at 4:00 PM PST
The moderated portion will be done as an open discussion focusing on:
- how these 3 ladies succeeded in their highly competitive industries
- what they wish they would have known earlier in their career
- 3 tips they’d give women in their industry
- 2 mistakes they learned, and grew from
We’ll then open it to the attendees to write in questions and comments for the panel.
