BROWN BAG LUNCHEON
Leaning In: A Book Discussion featuring
Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg
Moderated by NJLLA member Gayle Lynn-Nelson
The concept of “leaning in” has already made its mark on popular culture. Written by the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, this book addresses the lack of women in corporate leadership positions and encourages women to “lean in” at work and assert themselves more.
“Lean In” examines the barriers which prevent women from taking leadership positions and suggests steps for success, including being more open to taking career risk and being less concerned with pleasing people. It suggests that more female leadership will leader to fairer treatment for all women.
This topic is very relevant for members of a female-dominated profession. Attendees are encouraged to read the book before attending the discussion, where they can share ideas and experiences, and learn how others have dealt with similar challenges.
For this brown bag luncheon, there will only be one location. As always, bring your own lunch. Drinks and dessert will be provided by the host.
