Equipoise Fund programs Raising Girls and Womentum, in partnership with Soroptimist of Jackson Hole and Teton County Library, are pleased to host a community conversation on Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and the topic of women in leadership. Lean In, a new book that laments the shortage of females in leadership roles and urges women to be more assertive in their professional ambitions, has been both praised as an “inspiring call to action and blueprint for individual growth” and criticized for “placing too much of the onus on women who are already struggling to fulfill impossible demands.” Please join us for large and small group facilitated discussions of this controversial new read.
In keeping with the Raising Girls mission, one of the small group conversations will address how parents, educators and caregivers can prepare girls for the opportunities and pitfalls of modern womanhood.
Teton County Library Foundation is currently offering 10 free copies of Lean In for community members to share, and additional copies (e-books, audio and print) are available to check out with your library card. Inquire at the Front Desk of the Library. Copies of Lean In are also available for purchase at Valley Bookstore.
Participation in this program is free, and having read the book is not required to participate. Please contact Raising Girls for more information.
So that when she pushes hard against your rules, flailing, crying that you are mean or unfair, she is really asking you a question: Am I worth the fight, Dad? Are you strong enough to handle me? Make sure she knows the answer is yes.
