Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg Book Group

Monday, March 17, 11:15 am to 12:10 pm, in 023 Dunbar Library.

Led by Amber Vlasnik, Director, Women's Center; Stephanie Goodwin, Program Director, LEADER Consortium Research Assistant Professor, Psychology.

From the Lean In website: "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."

In this book group, Amber Vlasnik and Stephanie Goodwin will lead us through an exploration of Sandberg's book and the controversies and reactions that surround it.
