Lean In Chapters like this one are great for networking, attending events, and taking part in upcoming campaigns. To make the most of your experience, we encourage you to start or join a smaller Lean In Circle within this Chapter. Circles are small peer groups that meet regularly to develop new skills.
Our chapter is designed to bring as many women (and men) together to empower each other to achieve their ambitions. We are not attached to a single profession or company. We are a diverse group that encourages, mentors, laughs, and we lean in every single day.
How do we do this? Through our Circles. While we can’t guarantee you’ll achieve your wildest dream, we can promise that joining a Circle will give you the support to go for it. Members are taking on new challenges and opportunities thanks to the encouragement of their Circle.
A Circle can be a monthly round table at your home, a brown-bag lunch series at work, or even a virtual meet-up with people from around the world. The important thing is to get together regularly—and that everyone participates.
Our Lean In Virginia Chapter hosts quarterly events for larger groups. These events are larger and will always include networking and a topic or activity designed to educate or inspire.
Check out the circles below and if you don't see one that speaks to you, consider starting the Circle that will fill that gap!
