Sheryl Sandberg and her Lean In organization are rolling out a new program \for girls ages 11-15, designed to encourage girls to set leadership goals, navigate risk, and identify and challenge bias. With a free curriculum for facilitators, the program includes a combination of strength-building activities and education around stereotypes and the importance of allyship. 

Sandberg says she was inspired to create this new initiative because the adult Lean In community is thriving, with 80,000 circles in 183 countries, growing faster than ever before. But the latest reports show that it’ll be more than 130 years before women achieve equality, so Sandberg wanted to expand the program to reach girls when they’re particularly susceptible to negative social messages.
