In Boston, Sheryl Sandberg pitches ‘Lean In’ message

Her book may have spurred criticism in some quarters, but the message Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg delivered in Boston Thursday was embraced by an enthusiastic audience of professional women during a luncheon at the Seaport Hotel.

The company’s chief operating officer urged the hundreds of women in attendance to believe in themselves, be ambitious, and take the lead. That is, in her own words, to “lean in.” The event was one in a series Sandberg is scheduled to hold in the area as part of a national campaign to promote her newly released best-selling book, “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead.”
