    "Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead" by Sheryl Sandberg

    Join us for an enriching and stimulating third session of the Breaking Barriers Book Club, where we'll continue our exploration of Sheryl Sandberg's impactful work, "Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead." This session is dedicated to delving deeper into the themes of gender equality and women's challenges in the workplace.

    "Lean In" has ignited crucial dialogues concerning women's roles in professional settings and the imperative for gender parity. It provides actionable insights and advocates for a cultural shift to enable women to embrace leadership roles and confront prevailing gender stereotypes.

    Key topics we'll be focusing on include:

    • Overcoming the Leadership Ambition Gap: What bold steps would you take if fear were not a factor?
    • Navigating Success and Likeability
    • Debunking the Myth of 'Having It All'
    • The Importance of Mentorship and Building Support Networks

    To prepare for our discussion, we encourage you to engage with "Lean In" and jot down your reflections or queries. Even if you haven't finished the book, your participation and diverse viewpoints are valued.

    Date: May 03, 2024

    Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST

    Location: Virtual Event, via Zoom

    Please RSVP by April 29th to confirm your attendance. We anticipate a dynamic conversation and eagerly await your presence.

    Let's unite as women in the sign industry to uplift and empower each other as we lean into the future of our careers.
