As a companion to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's book, the nonprofit LeanIn.org foundation is promoting a program for women who want to follow up on her suggestions. These are the main elements:

  • Community: A website and Facebook page where women and men can share personal stories about careers or related issues.

  • Education: A series of free, online video tutorials on topics such as leadership and negotiation, largely developed by Stanford University's Clayman Institute for Gender Studies.

  • Circles: Guidelines for women to form small peer groups that meet regularly to discuss the tutorials and their own experiences. These include detailed instructions and meeting timetables, although a spokeswoman said circles are free to treat them as suggestions.
