Conversations about Women in the Workplace

PACSW is launching an exciting series of conversations about women in the workplace from November 2013 to October 2014.

This is a participatory series of conversations about women's leadership in the workplace. The topics of the 12 monthly sessions are inspired by Sheryl Sandberg's book Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead. Each session will be facilitated by a member of PACSW, except the opening session which will be facilitated by Dr. Amy Levine, an expert on women and leadership. You may sign up for one or all sessions depending on your interest.

You don't need to read the book to participate! Sign up through the UC Learning Center and search for “lean in."

Details about the sessions will be added below as they become available.
