WHAT ARE LEAN IN CIRCLES?
Leaning in is not a solo sport. In a world where women still face bias and other barriers at work, Lean In Circles are a safe space to share your struggles, give and get advice, and celebrate each other’s wins. Whether you need help navigating your new normal at work or are looking for support from women who understand what you’re going through, your Lean In Circle will give you the boost we all need.
Central Exchange is committed to offering women the ongoing inspiration and support to help them achieve their goals, and we are very excited to partner with the Lean In Network | Kansas City to offer Lean In Circles to our members and non-members throughout the KC metropolitan area.
Based on Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In, these small cohorts focus on encouraging women to pursue their ambitions and change the conversation from what we can’t do to what we can do.
Each Lean In Circle provides you an opportunity to connect with other women and share experiences that allow you to know each other by tapping into one another ideas and giving support. The group dynamics will grow and change throughout each session based on the participation of the cohort’s attendees.
Register today to join all 6 sessions of the LAVENDER Lean In Circle, focused on entrepreneurs, meeting the 3RD THURSDAY of the month at 11 AM, from February through July!
