|Lean In Circle|
The book "Lean In" by Sheryl Sandburg is focused on encouraging women to pursue their ambitions, and changing the conversation from what we can't do to what we can do. Be a part of our own Averett University Lean In group.
This group will be committed to offering women the ongoing inspiration and support to help them achieve their goals. Our Lean In Circle will be a small group that will meet monthly to encourage and support each other in an atmosphere of confidentiality and trust.
If you are interested in learning about being a part of Averett University's Lean In Circle, please join us on Thursday, March 6 at 4:30 p.m. at the home of Dr. Tiffany Franks to learn more about purchasing the book and what our circle will entail.
Please RSVP to either Pertina Carter at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lesley Villarose at email@example.com.
