Lean In Circle - Developing Women Leaders
Updated: Mar 27, 2022
Lean In helps women achieve their ambitions and create a more equal world where women of all identities are supported and empowered. This is an initiative of the Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Family Foundation, LeanIn.Org
Circles are small groups of women who come together regularly to support each other. In a world where women still face bias and other barriers at work, Circles are a safe space to share your struggles, give and get advice, and celebrate each other’s wins. Whether you need help navigating your new normal at work or are looking for support from women who understand what you're going through, your Circle will give you the boost we all need.

Women in Leadership positions are encouraged to register join & participate for Free.
The circle will be run on three fundamentals:
