What Women2Women Circle Members Are Saying...
“The most value to me came from the sharing of experiences and ideas from the diverse group of women in my group. Seeing what they have accomplished and overcome in their careers has been a inspiration to me. They have given examples of successful women that I strive to be like.”
“Support from other women. I also like concentrating the sessions on the topics that most of the attendees have an interest in, rather than following a pre-set direction.”
“The realization that I am not alone in my concerns, issues and fears AND that other women are willing to help by sharing their stories, successes, failures and overall experience.”
“The most valuable aspect of the Lean In Circle for me was hearing everyone’s stories and experiences. Being able to relate on a professional and personal level, and being able to share my struggles and experiences in a supportive setting free of judgement. The advice, ideas, and information I gained from my time in Lean In gave me a new prospective about myself, my job and my home life that I am so grateful for.”
What are Circles?
Circles are small groups of women who meet regularly to learn new skills, network, and encourage each other. These intentionally curated and facilitator-led groups are comprised of 12-14 women leaning in to learn, grow and support each other in a communicative and trusting atmosphere.
Why Join a Circle?
Because Circles are a place where women can be unapologetically ambitious, give voice to our dreams and get the push we need to start chasing them. They’re a place to share ideas, learn skills, and seek advice. Most of all, they’re a place to help each other become our best selves.
Whatever your goal—whether you’re working toward a promotion or building your confidence, reentering the workforce or starting a business—your Circle will help you get there.
I’m In. Give me the Details!
Curriculum is provided by the Lean In Foundation. Updated yearly the curriculum is a growing library of lectures offering participants practical skills applicable to professional and personal lives. Circles meet monthly, alternating between education meetings and exploration meetings. Video lectures are shown at education meetings followed by topic discussions. Exploration meetings allow members to discuss current-day situations they are challenged with within the context of work, life balance and more.
