The Buzz: Lean In or Not?
A debate has been raging since Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s “LEAN IN” hit bookshelves and became a best-seller in 2013. Fans hail her pro-feminism messages and pragmatic advice, while detractors say her views are misguided, mistaken, and can backfire for women aspiring to soar through the ranks. Does “leaning in” help or hurt women at work? SAP SVP, CLO and series executive producer Jenny Dearborn says, “Perhaps the key achievement of Sandberg’s book was to awaken us to this long overdue dialogue.”
