Thoughts on Leaning In

I'm always a bit surprised when I see negative feedback targeting Sheryl Sandberg. She's not perfect (but has never claimed to be), but there's no question she's played a huge role in shifting the dialogue around women in the workplace and has inspired MANY women to take bigger risks at work (myself included). She was gut-wrenchingly honest about the death...
