With the explosive popularity of Sheryl Sandberg’s bestseller Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, we are overdue to take an in-depth look at women's experience as managers within the archives profession. This structured panel discussion provides the unique perspectives of women managers from academic, nonprofit organization, government, and county-historical archives. The panel includes a framing of the status of women in the profession, with a special focus on women in management positions. Panelists discuss their individual experiences as women managers and their unique management styles within their institutions. They offer concrete examples of how they negotiate gender and leadership, including issues of mentoring, communication, life-work balance, advancement, salary negotiation and, of course, learning to “lean in” to the archives profession.
