Morgan (UIC East Campus). Our next WoRD (Women's Reading and Discussion) Club selection is: Lean In, by Sheryl Sandberg. You are welcome to bring your lunch.<br /><br />Please join us for a critical discussion of Lean In. Sheryl Sandberg's provocative, inspiring book about women and power--grew out of an electrifying TED talk Sandberg gave in 2010, in which she expressed her concern that progress for women in achieving major leadership positions had stalled. The talk became a phenomenon and has since been viewed nearly two million times. In Lean In, she fuses humorous personal anecdotes, singular lessons on confidence and leadership, and practical advice for women based on research, data, her own experiences, and the experiences of other women of all ages. Sandberg has an uncanny gift for cutting through layers of ambiguity that surround working women, and in Lean In she grapples, piercingly, with the great questions of modern life. Her message to women is overwhelmingly positive. She is a trailblazing model for the ideas she so passionately espouses, and she's on the pulse of a topic that has never been more relevant.<br /><br />The WoRD Flyer can be found at: http://www.uic.edu/depts/ccsw/committee/flyers/WoRDJuly2015.pdf<br />Sheryl Sandberg is chief operating officer at Facebook. Prior to Facebook, she was vice president of Global Online Sales and Operations at Google and chief of staff at the U.S. Treasury Department. She lives in Northern California with her two children.<br /><br />The WoRD (Women's Reading and Discussion) Club was created by members of the UIC Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Women (CCSW) for the purpose of reading and discussing books related to employment and professional/personal growth and development, particularly as they relate to women. The WoRD Club hosts in-person meetings to discuss selected readings.<br /><br />The WoRD Club invites all interested UIC employees and students. To join us, please contact Kris Zimmermann at kzimme3@uic.edu or Leslie Carnahan at lcarna2@uic.edu for more information and to be added to the listserv.<br /><br />WoRD Club meetings are designated as official Chancellor's Status Committee meetings, and are thereby considered approved for employee participation.
