About this Chapter
NOTE: We do all of our Chapter-related business on our Facebook group page! facebook.com/groups/LeanInAtlanta

Lean In Atlanta is an all-inclusive Chapter of support, empowerment, and education for women in the metro Atlanta area and those who wish to join us remotely. Lean In Atlanta welcomes all (men and women) to learn from and grow with our community. We meet once a month to discuss a focused topic and provide ongoing support and networking via this page.

Like our @LeanInATL page, where we provide empowerment, inspiration, and education related to feminism, equality, and women's issues, especially those pertaining to the metro Atlanta area.

Our Mission:
We seek gender equality for women and men in the workplace, in the home, and in everyday life, via policy and perception. We seek this in our communities, and to be a force for good in those communities.

Our Values:
*Empowerment - First and foremost, our Chapter is a tool for empowerment and personal and professional growth among our members.

*Self Love - Our Chapter promotes a positive message of self love, emphasizing mental and physical health and wellness among our members.

*Inclusion - Our Chapter practices intersectional feminism, the view that women experience oppression in varying configurations and degrees, taking into account race, gender, class, ability, and ethnicity. Additionally, our Circle places paramount importance upon our male allies, and seeks to make our group welcoming and valuable for all.

*Education - Our Chapter is a resource for knowledge of issues affecting women for members and beyond. Our Chapter is also a force for good in the community.
