Written by Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Facebook, Lean In features a collection of personal stories and experiences showcase the struggles to climb the corporate ladder as a woman. Even to this day, despite all progress made to level the playing field between men and women, there is still a great divide in many industries.
Lean In captivated my attention from the start and touched upon sensitive issues many are not willing to discuss. There is a large emphasis on demonstrating what we can do in the workforce versus what is stopping us.
Lean In is a powerful read and highly recommended to all. Not to mention Sheryl Sandberg is highly ranked on multiple Forbes lists and an absolute inspiration.
Another wonderful impact Lean In has made is forming chapters in different geographic areas. Each month they host panels with experts followed by networking. These are an excellent opportunity to learn from others and add to your professional development.
