Yes Women Can #LeanInTogether

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Women For Action is a proud partner of LeanIn.Org's programming because we believe that together, women can make a difference. This is why we are thrilled about the new Lean In campaign, #TogetherWomenCan, an initiative that promotes women rising to the top - together.

The campaign promotes four initiatives: 1. Workplace Ally - Women can be powerful allies for each other at work. Find ways to advance your female coworkers and push back against gender bias. Together, we can go further faster. 2. Mentor - Men often gravitate towards mentoring other men, so women miss out. Commit to mentoring at least one woman and give her the open-honest input she needs to succeed- and remember you can be a mentor at any stage of your career. 3. Positive Peer - Your peers can be powerful advocates and advisors. You can tap into your power of peer support by joining a Lean In Circle, a small group that meets regularly to learn and grow together. 4. Role Model For Girls - Together we can raise a generation of female leaders. Whether you are a mother, older sister, or mentor, model leadership and teach girls to speak up and step outside their comfort zone.

The campaign touts one message clearly - when women work together, women win. Inspiring women celebrities join forces with the new campaign as they discuss the women who’ve impacted their lives.

In partnership with AOL's MAKERS, Lean In asks nine celebrity women about the other women who supported their careers. Lena Dunham, Selena Gomez, Megyn Kelly, Eva Longoria Baston, Sheryl Sandberg, Abby Wambach, Kerry Washington, Emma Watson and Serena Williams share stories about the women who have empowered them.
