Sheryl Sandberg, 43
In her new book, Lean In, the Facebook COO analyzes why women’s progress in leadership positions has stalled and offers common-sense solutions.
Why she inspires us: Sheryl launched a community site, LeanIn.org, to help women empower each other by addressing the challenges they face in the workplace and at home.
Words of encouragement: “Together, we are stronger than any one of us alone,” Sheryl blogged. “Together, we can break down the stereotypes that hold us all back, making our organizations more productive and our homes happier.”
