  • Men, Women, Work and the Will to Lead
  • Conversation with  Bob O'Neill
  • ICMA-RC Workshop: How to Make Your Money "Lean In”

Men, Women, Work and the Will to LEAD

The lessons of Lean In are directly applicable to young professionals in local government so come prepared to learn new strategies and to share stories of when you chose to step up (or not) at work, at home, and at play. This session is all about building individual effectiveness that can be applied in your organization and your life regardless of your gender. Remember that “careers are jungle gym, and not a ladder” (Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead). Reading the Sheryl Sandberg in advance will enhance the discussion, but you can participate fully without having read the book.

Conversation with Bob O'Neill
