In the week that Facebook made a major jobs announcement – with plans to create an additional 1,500 jobs in Ireland – the marketing communications group Core hosted a Lean In event on Monday January 21st featuring Facebook’s COO, Sheryl Sandberg in conversation with Nuala Murphy from Lean In Belfast.
Over 200 Lean In members from around the country were in attendance at the event. The event coincided with Diversity and Inclusion month in Core, which is spearheaded by Jill Downey, Managing Director of Core Sponsorship and Fiona Field, Deputy Managing Director at Mediaworks.
Fiona Field, Deputy Managing Director at Mediaworks says: “We were honoured to host Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In Fireside Chat in Core in conversation with Lean In Leader Nuala Murphy. Lean In members from all over the country shared their success, stories and hurdles that they have overcome and the benefit of Lean In circles. Sheryl’s message was as pointed as it was inspirational, “In the future there will be no female leaders, just leaders”. As we celebrate our own Diversity & Inclusion month in Core, Sheryl talked about the importance of diversity and how women should be unapologetically ambitious.”
