Yesterday, the New England Venture Capital Association announced that Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg will visit Boston in April, headlining a breakfast at the Harvard Club of Boston. We're delighted to sponsor the event, along with MITX, TechStars, Digitas, HubSpot, Nanigans, Communispace, BzzAgent--and many others!
The event is part of Sandberg's launch of Lean In, her new book that examines the topic of women and leadership. With a reliance upon data, research and her own experiences as a senior executive at both Google and Facebook, Sandberg has crafted an argument designed to empower and encourage women to pursue business success. In conjunction with the book launch, Sandberg has created an entire “Lean In movement,” online communities and peer groups to foster and develop career goals.
At the April 5th event that we are sponsoring, Sandberg will offer her perspective on opportunities for innovation in leadership and lead an interactive Q&A session. More details and information regarding registration can be found here. We're very excited to be a part of this important conversation.
