Lean In Circles are small groups of women who meet regularly to support each other and learn new skills together. A Lean In Circle is a safe space to connect with other tradeswomen, speak openly about the challenges you’re facing, and build skills and confidence to navigate challenges at work. Visit leanin.org/tradeswomen to learn more.
