In November the Staff Picks book group will be reading the very popular Lean In: Women, Work and the Will To Lead. Author Sheryl Sandberg is in the perfect position to talk about women and leadership – the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, she has been ranked by Fortune magazine as one of the top 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and is listed among Time‘s 100 Most Influential People in the world.
In her book, Sandberg examines why women still hold so few leadership positions and some of the ways we can change this. To get a taste of what she’s talking about, watching this inspiring TED Talk while you’re waiting for a copy of the book. They’re on the way, and will soon be available at Robbins and Fox.
We’ll be meeting on Thursday November 21 at 7pm in the Robbins Library Conference Room.
