About the Author
LeanIn.Org is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women create an equal world.Founded in 2013 by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, LeanIn.Org works to help women achieve their ambitions and create a more equal world. LeanIn.Org offers inspiration and support through an online community, free educational materials, and Lean In Circles, small groups of peers who meet regularly to learn and grow together. The Lean In community includes more than two million women and men and 43,000 Lean In Circles in over 170 countries.LeanIn.Org also advocates for better public policies and a more equitable workplace. Their Equal Pay Day campaigns take aim at the gender pay gap. Their annual "Women in the Workplace" study—the largest of its kind—highlights the barriers women face and includes data-driven recommendations for how companies can do better. Their Mentor Her initiative calls on men to mentor and sponsor women, which is critical for workplace equality. In addition, they run programs to combat bias, because changing the trajectory of women and girls means changing how we think about gender. From research-backed tips for managers to an initiative with the NBA that calls on men to do their part, they give people the tools to push back against bias at work and at home.
