Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead

Past Event

Join this thought provoking, interactive discussion with other professional women around Sheryl Sandberg’s popular book “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead”.  Through her book Sheryl shares her personal stories, uses research to shine a light on gender differences, and offers practical advice to help women achieve their goals.  She challenges us as women to think in terms of what we can do versus what we can’t, and encourages us to work together to create a world of greater equality.

Leading this book discussion is Mary Blegen, Executive Vice President and Director of Employee Engagement and Leadership Development at U.S. Bank.  Mary is a dynamic and thoughtful leader both in the industry and within the local Twin Cities community.  Click HERE to review Mary’s biography.
