What are Lean In Circles?

Circles are small groups of women who come together for real talk and peer support. Right now, Circles are meeting virtually and helping each other through the pandemic. We’re a global community and we’re leaning on each other more than ever.

Why Join a Circle?

Circles are a safe space to speak openly about the challenges we’re facing—and rally together to tackle them. They’re a forum for sharing ideas, seeking advice, and learning new skills. Most of all, they’re a way to lift each other up and help each other grow.

Whether you’re tackling new challenges at work or home, looking for career advice, or just seeking peer support to get through this—your Circle will help you get there.

How Circles work

We provide everything you need to get your Circle up and running.

Find or start a Circle and schedule your first virtual meeting.

We’re a community of women who meet in nearly every country and at some of the largest companies.

Circles can meet online at any time that works for your members—over a coffee break, over lunch, or after work.

86% of Circle members say their group has positively impacted their life—and we need all the help we can get right now.

Leading a Circle is easy

  1. Register and invite a few friends to join

    We recommend small groups of 8 to 12 women—but many Circles start off with even fewer members.

  2. Schedule your first meeting

    Circles can meet online at any time—via Zoom or other video conferencing tools.

  3. Use our step-by-step meeting guides

    Choose from dozens of topics like navigating work and life during the coronavirus or how to ask your manager for what you need.
