Each meeting features a speaker who covers topics of interest to those who are involved in or contemplating a job search or career change. The meeting begins with a networking session at 9:45 AM. We ask everyone to be seated by 9:55 AM so that the speaker can start promptly at 10:00 AM.

    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.

    In this career workshop, Shira will lead you through her proprietary "Passiontivity Exercise," which will help you better understand the professional skills you want to use (or not use) and those you would like to grow. So, come learn how to move from being simply productive to enjoying passionate career success!
