Circles

Inaugural Event

Inaugural Event

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.

Winter Circles Kickoff

RISE Circle Growth + Engagement

Saturday, January 13, 2018

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 a better way to do that than to join a Lean In Circle?

What’s a Circle?

Great question! Circles are small groups—typically 8 to 12 members—that meet regularly to learn and grow together. There are more than 33,000 Circles in 150 countries and on more than 900 college campuses! At Lean In Seattle, we like to say Circles are where the “rubber meets the road.” In essence, it’s where we see the most impact in moving women forward.

Our January event kicks off the new year with an open call to all members who may be

  • curious about what a Circle is
  • looking for a Circle to join
  • wanting to start a Circle
  • looking for more members to join an existing Circle

At this event, we’ll host a panel of experienced Circle leaders and break out into a pop-up Circle meeting. You'll discover how powerful Circles can be in giving you the boost of energy and confidence to pursue your goals. And, we’ll give you the opportunity to connect with potential Circles at Circle sign-up stations. You can chat with members about their Circles to help find the right for you.

This event will be ALL ABOUT CIRCLES . . . and it’s going to be awesome. Here's how to participate:

  1. Looking to grow your Circle? Send a note before the event to lauren.el.ferguson @ gmail.com to hold a station for your Circle.

  2. Want to learn and join a Circle? Check out these resources and brainstorm about what you hope to gain in your life from joining a Circle. Then attend . . . and find your Circle!

It's summer time! And we're officially half way through 2016 and we want to do a mid-year check in open forum of where we are as a Chapter, what we are thinking of doing the rest of the year, and where we need help. We also want to hold a deep Q&A conversation around where you are in your life, what you are wanting from our Lean In community, what you've have liked and not liked this year, and your vision for the future - for yourself and our community.
