Since the launch of Sheryl Sandberg's #LeanInTogether initiative, the campaign has amassed quite the celebrity following.
In partnership with the NBA and WNBA, #LeanInTogether encourages men to help women in the fight for gender equality and emphasizes the economic and social benefits both genders can gain from equality. Everyone from entertainers to athletes and politicians have spread awareness for the campaign on social media.
Celebrities like Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow, Warren Buffett and Dwayne Johnson have posted images and words of support for the #LeanInTogether campaign. Athletes including Chris Bosh, Stephen Curry, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova have also backed the initiative with #LeanInTogether posts.

When Kenny Lerer and I launched @huffingtonpost on May 9, 2005, we could never have imagined what it has become. I am deeply grateful for his insights and vision that were instrumental to what we created together. And all these years later, Kenny is one of my closest friends, who I turn to — and lean on — for his wisdom, judgment, wit, and incredible loyalty. And today is his birthday! #LeanInTogether
In for equality? Pass it on by either posting an image to social media showing why you're for equality or an image of a man in your life who's leaning in for equality with the hashtag #LeanInTogether.
