Sheryl Sandberg visits UK to ask women to ‘Lean In’.

Sheryl Sandberg with Lean In book

Lean In for Graduates

Katherine Rushton in The Telegraph writes “Ms Sandberg will spend part of her recent visit to Britain promoting her new book, Lean In for Graduates, which advises women to willfully ignore The Glass Ceiling”

Since Sheryl Sandberg’s first book Lean In was published, it has sparked a global conversation about gender equality. Sheryl has now enlisted the help of experts and come up with a new book targeted at young women Lean In for Graduates, a handbook that offers instruction and inspiration for the next generation.

Lean In for Graduates includes the full text of the original bestseller as well as new chapters on finding your first job, negotiating your salary, listening to your inner voice and leaning in for women of color and millennial men. It also includes stories from young people around the world who have pushed past their fears and achieved their goals.

The 43-year old is Facebook’s chief operating officer and ranks as one of the most influential women in business.  She is currently promoting the Lean In Organisation’s Ban Bossy campaign. “When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a ‘leader’,” claims the campaign website. “Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded ‘bossy’. Words such as ‘bossy’ send a message: Don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys, a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead”.
