I just came a cross this video of Sherly Sandberg on TEDWomen. If you don’t know who Sheryl Sandberg is she’s the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook and was recently named the first woman on Facebook’s Board of Directors. In the grand scheme of things she’s in the less than 15% of women executives in the United States. She recently spoke at TED Talks addressing the issue of women in leadership roles. The talk is only about 15 minutes long but is enlightening and inspiring.
For those of us with daughters it’s sometimes heart-breaking knowing that she will have more obstacles to success than her brothers or cousins. Perhaps if we teach them the skills and the strength, they can be the leaders of tomorrow.
