Women Unite at Lean In's Regional Leaders Conference

Lean In Regional Leaders Conference

It was an absolute honor to be invited to this year's Lean In Regional Leaders Conference and to be able to spend time with our Founder Sheryl Sandberg. Meeting other regional leaders around the world from Dubai, Milan, Malaysia, Belfast, Barcelona and so much more was breathtaking and amazing!

Just a year ago, I founded the Lean In Dayton Chapter and months later I was honored as a regional leader for LeanIn.Org. The opportunity to participate in the national conference in Palo, Alto, California was rewarding. I am humbled by our global sisterhood at Lean In and I am even more grateful for the Dayton community members who believe in an activist for women's equality with a gargantuan vision who relocated from Chicago to carry such a mission.

After the extensive training the regional leaders received at Facebook in Silicon Valley and Stanford University this past weekend we had a sit-down with our Founder Sheryl Sandberg. What many of us noted was that she is greatly humbled by the circles around the world who have entrusted in Lean In's programming to fulfill personal goals and better the lives of others. 

Which brings to mind, I invite more of you to participate. Join us in our second year as we dive into extensive peer support and leadership development. 
Lastly, in a post-conference message, and to my surprise, Sheryl notes our chapter to emphasize the range of Lean In's work around the world!
