Monday Morning Speaker: Kathlyn Taylor Gaubatz
Reading Lean In and Unfinished Business After Forty
The Wisdom of Sheryl Sandberg and Anne-Marie Slaughter for Professional Transitions in Middle-Age and Beyond
Conversation with KATHLYN TAYLOR GAUBATZ
Through forceful ideas presented in their books Lean In and Unfinished Business, Sheryl Sandberg and Anne-Marie Slaughter have sparked an exciting conversation about the roles of men and women in the workplace and the home.
Don’t worry if you haven’t had time to read these important books. In this lively conversation:
· We will discuss the most interesting and provocative lessons from Sandberg, who focuses on the “leadership ambition gap” between women and men, and Slaughter, who takes on our society’s “competition bias” and devaluing of “care.”
· We will focus on wisdom from each author that is particularly relevant for people making professional transitions after forty.
· We will take time to reflect on areas of our own lives where we might put the insights of Sandberg and Slaughter into play.
