Greater Austin Events





This “Lean In” panel is based on the concepts laid out by Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook, in her groundbreaking book, Lean In, which discusses how embracing a career and a healthy family life are applicable to both women and men.

In the book, Sandberg argues that 21st Century challenges are going to be best tackled by people who can stay at the top of their games professionally while not sacrificing their ability to be great parents and spouses. This panel will offer valuable thoughts on how to “lean in”—thoughts that are important for people of all ages and at all stages of life.

The Big Game – Super Bowl XLIX Watch Party

4:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Fado Irish Pub

Why would you watch the Super Bowl from your couch when you could: 

  1. Support an amazing cause while you drink beer.
  2. Drink and eat for the cost of your ticket! And…
  3. Hang out with other awesome people.

You can expect…FOOD (because it’s essential), BEER (and other alcohol naturally), PRIZES, and a WARM FUZZY FEELING (that’s not just the beer, it’s knowing you helped at-risk middle school students stay on the path towards graduation).
