The Book Club is a collaborative effort between the Thomas G. Carpenter Library and the Center for Professional Development & Training and is open to all UNF employees, including OPS and Student Assistants. The Book Club provides employees an opportunity to network with colleagues from other departments and to grow personally and professionally by reading, sharing, and leading discussions. Each term, Book Club members read a book and discuss it during a lunchtime meeting. Meetings are held from noon to 1 p.m. in the Library Conference Room, Building 12, Room 2400. Join us for an opportunity to network with others outside of your department, to learn by reading, and to engage in dialogue. Light refreshments are provided.
The UNF Book Club will meet in the 2013 Fall Term. (Fall registration opens August 21st.)
The book selection is "Lean In: Woman, Work and the Will to Lead" by Sheryl Sandberg.
Sheryl Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked on Fortune’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which became a phenomenon and has been viewed more than two million times, encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto.In Lean In, Sandberg digs deeper into these issues, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to cut through the layers of ambiguity and bias surrounding the lives and choices of working women. She recounts her own decisions, mistakes, and daily struggles to make the right choices for herself, her career, and her family. She provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career, urging women to set boundaries and to abandon the myth of “having it all.” She describes specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment and demonstrates how men can benefit by supporting women in the workplace and at home.
