A new kind of “playdate”: My Lean In Circle…and Power & Influence…

Posted by on Apr 17, 2014 in Be Informed, Career "Re-Entry" Series, Mom as Manager | 1 comment

When my kids were toddlers, I lived for playdates. The kids would play, and the moms would talk “shop”, which meant sharing potty training strategies and bemoaning the serious lack of sleep we were experiencing. Today at lunch, I found myself in a different sort of “playdate”. It was the second meeting of our new Lean In...

Noisy voices spilled in through the door, as college students congregated outside waiting for their next class to begin. My stomach grumbled, even though I had just come from eating in the cafeteria an hour before. I looked at my watch. It was snack time, but I...

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg: A Fear-Busting Manifesto for Women

Posted by on Aug 8, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Books for Moms, Career "Re-Entry" Series, Featured Posts | 2 comments

One of the books on my reading list this summer was Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook and the new (and initially reluctant) face of modern feminism.
