We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored
— Sheryl Sandberg

Lean In Circles, inspired by Sheryl Sandberg’s acclaimed book Lean In, aims to provide professional support groups within Women in Business. Circles will be concentration specific, such as Women in Finance and Women in Marketing, as well as diversity-group specific, like Women of Color and LGBTQ+ community groups. Circles will be groups of 8-12 women, led by women of junior or senior standing who have had industry experience, and will provide like-minded women a support system to learn skills, share ideas and create a community. These circles will be a place to talk about careers and aspirations, as well as give career advice and coaching. Lean in circles, in accordance with the mission of Women in Business, will empower women to become their best selves personally and professionally.
