“Now Is Our Time”
Re: Sheryl Sandberg (MBA 1995)
Since becoming the COO of Facebook, in 2008, Sheryl Sandberg has managed the social media giant’s complex business operations. More recently she has taken on a second, no less public role outside the company as an outspoken advocate for women aspiring to leadership positions. Her new book, Lean In—which Sandberg describes as “sort of a feminist manifesto”—is a call for women to act in their own behalf to overcome institutional and personal barriers to success. In this edited interview with HBR’s editor in chief, Adi Ignatius, Sandberg explains why the workplace is ready for a revolution.
