Lean In Singapore: What Works For Women @ Work


Topic: Strategies for Beating Gender Bias in the Work Place – An Introduction
Learn how to spot gender bias and hear successful women’s strategies for navigating it.

In this event, we are leveraging on the works of Joan C. Williams, a distinguished professor of law at the University of California, Hastings College of Law and co-author of "What Works for Women at Work: Four Patterns Working Women Need to Know". In a series of educational videos she outlines four different patterns of gender bias that shape today’s workplaces.

Sharing two of the "What Works for Women at Work" videos, we will help you spot two of the main gender bias patterns and describe proven strategies successful women use to navigate these subtle biases. We will work in small, guided ‘circles’ to share and explore our own experiences and strategies to define some practical next steps for each attendee.

Let’s #LeanInTogether.

Women accomplish amazing things when we support each other. When a woman helps another woman, they both benefit. And when women celebrate one another’s accomplishments, we’re all lifted up. Together women can do more, go further, and change the world.

We want all women to have the confidence and know-how to achieve their goals. In this meet up, we share with you practical tips on building your personal brand, and you'll get to engage industry experts on how you can do so. Find out more about Lean In, what we are doing in the Singapore Chapter and how you can get involved.


LeanIn.Org was founded by Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg, to empower all women to achieve their ambitions. Offering inspiration and support through our network of 500+ partners, an online community, free expert lectures, and Lean In Circles, small peer groups who meet regularly to share and learn together.
