Sheryl Sandberg on 60 Minutes

By - Last updated: Wednesday, March 20, 2013

There has been much written about Sheryl Sandberg and her book Lean In both before and after it was published early last week. In fact, I wrote about it in my last post.   A friend suggested I watch her interview on 60 Minutes a couple of days before her book was released; I thought it was great!!   Just in case you missed it, you can check it out at   Please let me know what you think.

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

I read Sheryl Sandberg's new book Lean In yesterday!!   And I loved it!!

She definitely had more to lose than gain by doing so and she knew it and wrote the book anyways!!   Congratulations, Sheryl!!   I encourage you to read it and I would love to hear what you think of it!!

I really liked Leah Eichler's Women@Work column in Saturday's Globe "Forget the binder, let's just have a quota."   It is thoughtful and well researched (as all of Leah's columns are) and it is worth reading the entire article, just to get to the quote from Charlotte Sweeney, a diversity consultant in the second last paragraph and Leah's conclusion in the final paragraph. You can find it by following this link:   This link will take you to Leah Eichler's weekly newsletter Femme-O-Nomics!! I am a subscriber and I find something in it almost every week which interests or educates or inspires me, so I highly recommend it!!   I will come clean and tell you I like pretty much everything Leah Eichler writes and produces ...
