Booktalk #3: Learning to Lean In

I recently read Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In and have since been expounding its virtues. Just yesterday, I had a conversation with a friend about it (shout-out to Vv!), so I’m all talked out for the moment.

In a nutshell, it’s a manifesto for women who are trying to find and advance their foothold in the workplace; it’s also a reflection on society’s biases, and what we ourselves do that holds us back.

The origins of the book come from Sandberg’s 2010 TED talk, in which she discusses some of the same points. It’s recommended reading/viewing for anyone who, in Sandberg’s words, believes that “a truly equal world would be one where women ran half our countries and companies and men ran half our homes”.
