Get Directions

Looking for a great group of women to have conversations, build connections, and get your day off to a great start? Then join fellow Ellevate members for our September coffee chat!

September's Coffee & Connections discussion will be centered around the concept of "Likeability Trap" - a term first introduced in Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In which describes the societal construct where successful women are seen as less likeable, and likeable women are seen as less successful. For men, the opposite correlation is true: powerful men tend to be better liked. This phenomenon is very much a play in our professional lives and it’s a huge hurdle for powerful women to overcome.

To help frame our conversation, feel free to read the following recent NYT Opinion pieces on the Likability Trap:

"Men Invented the Likability Trap. Guess Who Benefits" - Claire Bond Potter

"How Women Can Escape the Likability Trap"

Come ready for an action-packed session. We look forward to seeing you there!

Coffee and other refreshments will be available to purchase.
