Author Biography
Meers, Sharon (Author)
Sheryl Sandberg was born in 1969 in Washington, D.C. Sandberg enrolled at Harvard College and in 1991, graduated summa cum laude with an A.B. in Economics and was awarded the John H. Williams Prize for the top graduating student in economics. She attended Harvard Business School and in 1995 she earned her M.B.A. with highest distinction. After business school, she worked as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company. From 1996 to 2001, Sandberg served as Chief of Staff to then United States Secretary of the Treasury, Larry Summers, under President Bill Clinton where she helped lead the Treasury¿s work on forgiving debt in the developing world during the Asian financial crisis. She joined Google Inc. in 2001 and served as its Vice President of Global Online Sales & Operations until March 2008. At that time, Facebook announced that Sheryl Sandberg would be hired as the company's COO.

In 2011, Sandberg was ranked #5 on "the world's 100 most powerful women" by Forbes magazine. She was named as one of the top 100 influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2012. In March 2013, Sandberg released her first book, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, which deals with business leadership and development, issues with the lack of females in government and business leadership positions, and feminism in general.

Sandberg is also on the boards of The Walt Disney Company, Women for Women International, and the Center for Global Development and V-Day. She was previously a board member of Starbucks, the Brookings Institution and Ad Council. Her title Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2013.
