Let’s change the future
You and students around the world are our best hope for a more equal world. One way you can drive change is by supporting each other, and talking openly about gender, in Lean In Circles.
How Circles Work
Circles are small peer groups that meet regularly to learn and share together. Studies show that we’re more creative, more confident and accomplish more in groups—and what better time to tap into your own team of supporters than school?
Commit to open, honest communication and confidentiality.
Select 8 to 12 peers. They can be people you know well or are meeting for the first time.
Use our meeting agendas, discussion guides, free online lectures and more.
Your Personal Team
of coaches, collaborators, confidants and cheerleaders.
We provide everything needed to start and run a successful Circle on your campus—starting with Mightybell, a technology platform that makes it easy to connect with students on your campus and organize into Circles.
