D.C./Philadelphia Book Club
Wed 9/29 • 4:30PM PDT
Join the D.C. and Philadelphia Bruins for their monthly book discussion. This month’s book selection is “Beyond Leaning In: Gender Equity and What Organizations Are Up Against” by Melanie Ho ’01, MA ’05, Ph.D. ’08, who will be our special guest during this event. Ho is currently living in DC and recently published her book, “Beyond Leaning In: Gender Equity and What Organizations Are Up Against.”
All are welcome, whether you will read the book or not. “Beyond Leaning In: Gender Equity and What Organizations Are Up Against” is a business book written as a novel and covers challenges that women face as they advance into leadership positions (it’s categorized as a “business book,” but the lessons are relevant across sectors). She wrote it from the perspective of male and female characters across multiple generations, with the hope that it sparks discussions across different groups around what can be emotionally-charged topics.
