Many Americans discovered Sheryl Sandberg when her book, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, became a national bestseller and started a number of conversations about ambition, power, and women in the workplace.

However, Sandberg had been building her credentials and honing her message for years. After receiving both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Harvard, she quickly established herself as a globally-minded businesswoman, working for the World Bank in her early twenties before becoming a titan of Silicon Valley through major positions at Google and Facebook in her thirties and forties.  

<i>Forbes&nbsp;</i>has ranked Sandberg as one of the ten most powerful women in the world.

Her TEDWomen talk given in December 2010, “Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders,” helped propel Sandberg from Silicon Valley straight to the national stage.

In the 2010s, Sandberg takes on many more roles, taking on positions within the Obama administration, publishing Lean In and launching the Lean In Foundation alongside it. By mid-decade, she will be perceived as one of the most powerful women in the world.
