leaninorg: Whatever your goals for 2018 may be, we

Whatever your goals for 2018 may be, we think starting a Lean In Circle can help you get there. We like to think of Circles as a place where women can be unapologetically ambitious and receive support for any goal. This year, surround yourself with people who help you stop to ask, "What would I do if I weren't afraid?" And then go for it and cheer each other on. Start your own Circle at leanin.org—and wishing everyone a happy 2018! (And speaking of badass women, thanks to our very own for the lovely lettering above)

leaninorg: 2018 is around the corner. As you lean

2018 is around the corner. As you lean in to your goals for the year ahead, surround yourself with people who encourage you when things are going well and help you stick with them when the going gets tough. Women in Circles say they feel more confident and more ambitious—and 85% credit their Circle with a positive change in their life. Start your own Circle at leanin.org....because peer support can make a world of difference.

leaninorg: When you want to tell a friend or

When you want to tell a friend or loved one going through a hard time that you’re there for them, the standard holiday greeting cards just won’t do. That’s why illustrator created this special line of cards for to help people share their feelings—and perhaps even laughter—in those moments when the holidays don’t feel very happy.

leaninorg: On average, Latinas in the United States are

On average, Latinas in the United States are paid 46% less than white men. This isn’t about how much Latinas work—Latinas participate in the labor force at the same rate as non-Hispanic white women, yet white women earn more. This isn’t about what fields Latinas work in—Latinas are paid less across fields and industries, even higher-paying ones and even those dominated by women. And this isn’t about education—no matter what their level of education, Latinas are still paid less than white women and men. is about facing these facts squarely. Sexism and racism remain powerful forces, and Latinas face that reality every day in ways large and small. We all need to step up to close this pay gap.

leaninorg: Today on #LatinaEqualPayDay, the Lean In community is

Today on , the Lean In community is teaming up with small businesses in cities from San Diego to Miami to Dallas to offer 46% discounts to represent the Latina pay gap. Latinas face a much larger pay gap than women overall, and at the current rate of progress Latinas won’t receive equal pay until 2248 (yes, you read that right). From pet stores to fitness studios, these businesses are coming together to send a message loud and clear: we can’t afford to wait that long. We need to do better right now. Every woman deserves to be paid fairly and treated equally. Latina Equal Pay Day reminds us how far we have to go – and how many people are working hard every day to get us there.

leaninorg: Employees think gender diversity is less of a

Employees think gender diversity is less of a priority for their manager than it is for their company and CEO. When managers show a high commitment to gender diversity, employees are more committed themselves—and women are less likely to think that their gender will play a role in missing out on an opportunity.

leaninorg: Companies more often prioritize gender diversity than racial

Companies more often prioritize gender diversity than racial diversity—when in fact, gender and race are inseparable and need to be prioritized equally. When companies treat them as different issues, their policies and programs can fall short. They do not account for the complex and varied experiences of women, and women of color in particular are often left out. It’s a mistake to assume that all women are having the same experience. There is no single story of women, yet as shows us, too often gender diversity efforts are designed as if there is only one.

leaninorg: There

There's a lot of news right now about sexual harassment in Hollywood and other industries. This is a toxic problem that needs to end. To do that, we all need to see the problem clearly – and as our Women in the Workplace report shows, we have a long way to go. When it comes to how women and men see the state of women and gender diversity efforts, there are striking differences. One of the biggest gender divides is over how disrespectful behavior toward women is handled at work: men are 60% more likely than women to think such behavior is quickly addressed in their company. This week's news shows how egregious behavior at work can continue for years and even decades in plain sight. We admire the courage of every woman who speaks out. And we all need to do far more to create workplaces where women – and all people – are safe and respected.

leaninorg: Nearly half of men think women are well

Nearly half of men think women are well represented in leadership at companies where only one in ten senior leaders is a woman. And just over half of women think women are well represented in leadership at companies where only about three in ten senior leaders is a woman. shows us what equal representation really looks like.
