Lean In for Graduates Discussion Panel

Top Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg made a splash and started a movement with the publication of the bestseller Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. We’re taking a page out of her book and hosting another “Lean In” discussion panel at the Main Library at Goodwood at 6:30 p.m. next Wednesday, May 27.

Our first panel in January was so successful, we’re bringing it back! Since May is graduation month, our panel will focus this time on advice for young people entering the workforce for the first time. There is a version of Sandberg’s book aimed specifically at graduates: Lean In for Graduates. The panel will feature a group of female leaders who will give their own interpretation of “leaning in” and advice for young graduates entering the professional world. The discussion will be followed by a question-and-answer period with the audience. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public, so we hope to see you there!

Panel members include:

Michelle Ginn-Daigre, test analyst lead, IBM

Roshonda Hanible, founder and CEO of Dominion Investments, LLC

Jisun Kim, postdoctoral researcher, Louisiana State University

Tara Montgomery Madison, attorney and partner, Kean Miller

Sara Moore, environmental scientist, CK Associates, and co-founder, Louisiana Women in Technology (LaWIT)
