CKGSB Dialogue with Sheryl Sandberg: Women in Leadership and the Future of Online Business

“While women continue to outpace men in educational achievement, we have ceased making real progress at the top of any industry. This means that when it comes to making the decisions that most affect our world, women’s voices are not heard equally.

A truly equal world would be one where women ran half our countries and companies and men ran half our homes.”

-Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and Author of Lean In:

Women, Work, and the Will to Lead

CKGSB Dialogue with Sheryl Sandberg: Women in Leadership and the Future of Online Business

In this event co-sponsored by the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) and China CITIC Press, Sheryl Sandberg will be promoting the Chinese release of her best-selling book, “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead.” With her book, Sandberg has sparked a movement around the world, inspiring women to take greater leadership positions by engaging in an inner-revolution as well as confronting biases they face in the workplace. This book is poised to be impactful and thought-provoking here in China.  

Sandberg will also be discussing the future of online business through a dialogue with CKGSB’s professors and some of the top leaders of Chinese technology firms. This discussion will be a great opportunity to discover how leading Internet companies like Facebook and their Chinese counterparts are revolutionizing businesses and societies.
