What does it actually mean to be an ally of women? Join us as we explore what allyship is, share actionable steps that allies can take, and celebrate what allies are already doing to move women forward. We encourage all Lean In Seattle members to bring their allies—their spouse, partner, colleague, children, or friends. We want EVERYONE, including men, to join us for our first Masterclass of 2018 to dig into this important topic.
Are you curious about what a Circle is? Maybe looking for a Circle to join? Or wanting to start a Circle? Perhaps you're looking for more members to join an existing Circle?
The mission of Lean In Seattle is to move women forward. We are actively listening to this community to learn more about what members need in order to move forward individually and as members of Circles. This is the inauguration of a new series of quarterly events called Circles CONNECT that focuses on education and exchange opportunities that members need for personal and Circle development.
The New Year is right around the corner and we know what that means: time to set some big goals to tackle in 2018! What better way to do that than to join a Lean In Circle? Circles are small groups—typically of 8 to 12 members—that meet regularly to learn and grow together.
At this event, we’ll host a panel of experienced Circle leaders and break out into a pop-up Circle meeting. We’ll also provide the opportunity to connect with potential Circles at Circle sign-up stations. Save your spot on Eventbrite!

EMPOWER YOUR FINANCIAL SKILLS: Inclusion + Education For Economic Advancement | Ownership + Contribution Series
Equipping and empowering all women with financial acumen and skills development equates to moving women forward. This event is intentionally inclusive and we will break down barriers women are facing in personal finance and decision making.
We are eager to welcome several highly respected speakers and trainers to this workshop to share how Lean In Seattle members can reach their economic goals both personally and professionally.
On October 7, it’s time to get real. In a new style of masterclass workshop, we at Lean In Seattle will be tackling big, meaty, actionable content designed to work as a quantum leap to our mission of moving women forward. After the Lean In and McKinsey’s Women in the Workplace, study found that in 2015, 90% of new CEOs were promoted or hired from line roles, and 100% were men (with women holding only 20% of SVP level line roles), we knew that line roles + the C-Suite needed to be a hot area of focus. So, if you want to get to the C-Suite, be a part of critical business conversations, or learn how to create your own path to both, do.not.miss.this.
It’s about to get real. Are you ready?
Have you ever accepted a job offer, and wondered if your compensation could have been higher? Have you seen new positions open, but don’t know how to ask for a promotion?
We’re excited to announce our September event: Negotiate to Win. Our expert panelists will share insights on how women can better negotiate for new jobs and promotions. And our interactive breakout session will give you a chance to learn and up-level the skills that will lead you to achieve your goals.
