Transcript of Lean In

What would
you do if
you weren't

The dilemma
Sit at the Table
Success & Likeability

The message in this book can be summed up by advising women to lean in to their careers and men to lean in to their families. By working together to achieve equality we will be able to do so without internal or external obstacles to slow us down.
Don't Leave Before you Leave
Make your Partner a Real Partner
Feeling like a fraud
The Imposter Syndrome
External Factors
In order to grow and challenge yourself, you have to believe in your own abilities. I still face situations that I fear are beyond my capabilities. I still have days when I feel like a fraud. But now I know how to take a deep breath and keep my hand up. I have learned to sit at the table.
Group exercise:
Split into two groups: women & men
Write your own answers on a sticky
Collect all responses on white board
Heidi Roizen Study

Men - providers, decisive, driven
Women - caregivers, sensitive, communal
57% of male students tried to negotiate a higher starting salary, while 7% of female students did the same.

In 1970 American women were paid 59 cents for every dollar their male counterparts made.
In 2010 it was 77 cents.
Sheryl, your desire to be liked by
everyone will hold you back. When you want to change things, you can't please everyone. If you do, you aren't making enough change!
I truly believe the single most important
career decision that a woman makes is
whether she will have a life partner and
who that life partner is.
Women aren't making it to
the top of any profession
any where in the world.
There are 195 independent countries in
the world, 17 are run by women
Of Fortune 500 CEO's, 21 are women

Women make up 14% executive officer
positions and hold 17% board seats
For women of color this becomes 4%
executive officer positions and 3% board
74% of professional women will rejoin the
workforce after having a child

40% will return to full time jobs

Average annual earnings decrease by 20%
if they are out of the workforce for just one year
Girls earn about 57% of the undergraduate and 60% of the graduate degrees in the United States

However, by the time this pipeline is filling leadership positions, it is overwhelmingly stocked with men

2012 McKinsey survey of 4000 employees revealed that 36% of men wanted to reach the C Suite compared to 18% of women
By the time they are in college, women are already thinking about the trade-offs they will make between professional and personal goals.

When asked to choose between marriage and career, female college students are twice as likely to choose marriage as their male classmates.
43% of highly qualified women with children are leaving careers for a period of time.
The more satisfied a person is with her position, the less likely she is to leave.
