About The Book:
lean-inLean In by Sheryl Sandberg

Sandberg is chief operating officer of Facebook and coauthor of Option B with Adam Grant. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TED talk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which has been viewed more than six million times, encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto.

Lean In continues that conversation, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to change the conversation from what women can’t do to what they can. Sandberg provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career. She describes specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment, and demonstrates how men can benefit by supporting women both in the workplace and at home.

Written with humor and wisdom, Lean In is a revelatory, inspiring call to action and a blueprint for individual growth that will empower women around the world to achieve their full potential.

About the Book Club:
The PMINEO WIPM Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of women in project and program management. There is no Book Club membership or fees. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and coming to the Book Club with an open mind and being prepared to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.

• 6:30 PM – Welcome, introductions, discuss book
• 7:30 PM – Discuss Next Book/Timing
• 7:45 PM – End

PDUs Available:
Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of leadership – we estimate up to six hours of reading, which converts to up to 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook .
