"Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead" is a 2013 book written by Sheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook. The book has been reviewed by various commentators and has generated much discussion. In her 2013 New York Times book review, Anne-Marie Slaughter states, "Her point [Sandberg], in a nutshell, is that notwithstanding the many gender biases that still operate all over the workplace, excuses and justifications won't get women anywhere. Instead, believe in yourself..." Ms. Slaughter tells her readers,"...no one who reads this book will ever doubt that Sandberg herself has the will to lead, not to mention the requisite commitment, intelligence and ferocious work ethic." Come join Drs. Aschner and Oyeku as they lead a robust discussion about the take home points of the book and how the book relates to the lives of clinicians and physician scientists. These two women will set the stage for a spirited and engaging dialogue by sharing their own career paths and lessons learned. Participants will have an opportunity to share and learn from each other in a positive, supportive environment. You will not want to miss this evening.
Judy L. Aschner, M.D.
Suzette Oyeku, M.D., M.P.H.
