Lean In SF hosts a monthly speaker series every third Wednesday of the month. These are typically held at WeWork or at one of our sponsors' headquarters.
We also host smaller community events in an informal setting, such as hiking or small workshops. We know not everyone enjoys larger networking events, and we aim to make Lean In SF as inclusive as possible. Smaller community events are a great way to meet other professional women without the formalities of our speaker series.
To RSVP for upcoming events, visit our Eventbrite page.
Lean In Stories
On prioritizing her time for passion projects
Reading Lean In inspired Dynasti to step back and audit her life. She took inventory of how she was spending her time and energy and in that exercise, she came to recognize that many of the activities and people she was committing to were already very important to her. Dynasti was able to solidify her true passions and feel confident that she could create the space and time needed to pursue all her passions. One example of this is how Dynasti has successfully balanced her career as a VP of Talent at a non profit with her passion for fitness. As a part-time fitness instructor and advocate for diverse women owning their careers in meaningful ways, she works on coaching women through pivotal changes to create their own seat at the table, in all aspects of their lives.
On inspiring change through coaching
Maria Bailey's love for serving others shines through with her coaching business, where she's helping professionals find their voice and purpose. Her coaching sessions help these professionals rediscover their passions, identify goals, inspire change, and broaden perspectives. She's especially proud of being able to reach the under represented, such as women of color and the LGBTQ communities. Coaching others has also allowed Maria to hone her own purpose and focus on personal growth- a happy outcome of her business.
