Altvia, Insurium, and Xyleme are delighted to announce the creation of a Lean In Circle for our female employees. The Lean In Foundation was founded by Sheryl Sandberg in 2013 and since then, more than 56,000 women have started Lean In Circles in 188 countries as a way for women to connect, learn from each other, achieve their goals, and be a powerful force for change in the world.
We kicked off our Lean In Circle with about 25 women across all three companies. Our first session focused on getting to know each other, establishing ground rules, and aligning on goals. The Lean In Circle will meet monthly and use the curriculum and framework provided by the Lean In Foundation to help guide our discussions and focus on themes of leadership, professional development, and creating community.
We had great participation at our inaugural meeting with representation across all levels of our organizations. We are thrilled to be leading this initiative across the Bow River Software Growth Equity portfolio companies and look forward to supporting our women to help them learn new skills, expand their networks and achieve their goals.
