Montreal Book Club Discussion on "Lean in" by Sheryl Sandberg



January 20, 2014


The Greater Montreal Chapter of Women In Bio is excited to present its inaugural Book Club event featuring the book “Lean In”, written by the COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg. After Sandberg’s provocative TEDTalk in 2010, this book digs deeper into the issues and challenges women experience in the workplace and encourage women to “sit at the table”, take risks, and pursue their goals. Sandberg uses many personal experiences and anecdotes, as well as published research, to explore the day-to-day biases and unspoken challenges women may face. Sandberg also includes practical advice, for men and women, as to how we can move forward and increase opportunities for professional growth and personal fulfillment. Her book has prompted conversations around the globe and we are looking forward to hearing your thoughts and personal experiences. Guests will be split into small groups so that everyone has a chance to participate in the discussion and the groups will come together during the last half hour to share thoughts and network. Seats are limited and walk-ins will not be accepted the night of the event, so please register early. Coffee, tea and dessert will be provided.

Members: $10.00 USD
Non-Members: $25.00 USD
