COO of Facebook & Author of Lean In
Inspired by Sheryl Sandberg, the NAAAP Boston WIN Lean In Circle is a 12-month program that brings together ten women for ongoing inspiration and support to pursue their ambitions and achieve their goals. Participants openly talk about the challenges that women face and work together to change the conversation from what we can’t do to what we can do. From exploring workplace and life issues and delving into professional and personal development topics, the goal is to encourage and empower each other to strive for individual and collective growth, as well as break barriers to change the trajectory of women.
In a WIN Lean In Circle, members not only form an active and solid peer-to-peer support community, but gain from opportunities to learn from each other through an open exchange of ideas and experiences. Members will meet monthly to discuss topics, engage in exercises and take turns as facilitators. Monthly discussion alternates between topics chosen from the Lean In book or Lean In website (www.leanin.org) or topics selected to share personal experiences and lessons learned. Possible topics include: Negotiation, Team Dynamics, Difficult
Conversations, Lessons Learned from Failure, Power and Influence and Personal Branding.
The Lean In Circle program is also designed help participants build a strong cross-industry network through peer- to-peer mentoring and leadership development. The program, designed to address the unique professional and personal challenges that Asian American women face in their professional and personal life, will push participants outside of their comfort zone to reach for new career horizons. As a NAAAP Boston WIN program, a Lean In Circle benefits from the WIN Initiative and numerous NAAAP resources to help grow and sustain a strong community of Asian American women in the Boston area.
Join us in our mission of building the Boston Asian American Sisterhood to empower each other and dismantle the barriers that hold us back – Together we are STRONGER!
