Community 2: Lean In | Roberta Basso

October 1, 2019

This week we're discussing women in leadership with Roberta Basso, International Manager for Lean In China. She traces her path from Southern Italy to the Netherlands to China, where she found herself as the only woman on a team of engineers in the industrial sector, and then again in the software industry. So how do you find your way as an expat when you're a minority (foreigner) within a minority (a woman), dealing prejudice and assimilation issues? She talks about the tools that the Lean In community gave her to succeed in her career, and how being able to find a place within a supportive network empowered her with a sense of purpose- namely, helping the next generation of women leaders and making sure that men are included in conversations about issues around gender and equity in the workplace.
