Lean In Circles are small groups who meet regularly to learn and grow together, and they're changing lives. Women are asking for more, stepping outside their comfort zones, and leaning in.




Circles come in all shapes and sizes. To get the most out of your group, we recommend eight to twelve members (a good size to make sure everyone gets heard) at similar stages in life (because peers are more likely to have shared experiences). A Circle can be a monthly roundtable at someone’s home, a brown-bag lunch series at work, or even a virtual meet-up with people from around the world. The important thing is that you get together regularly and everyone participates actively. We also encourage you to stick with it: Circles that meet for more than six months report higher satisfaction, and many Circles stay together—and support one another—for years.




You can search for a Circle in your area—or start your own—by visiting our Lean In Los Angels Circles Hub.




As the moderator, you can build your group (8-10 people) who will hold each other accountable and help everyone grow.Our Circle Moderator Application is now LIVE! You can apply to start and lead your own circle by following the Google Form link below. The deadline is August 31, 2017.

​​"I became a circle moderator one year ago because I wanted to connect like minded women who could feed off each other's energy, wisdom and confidence. No woman should have to reinvent the wheel in any aspect of her life when there are so many smart, kind and generous friends to learn from."
