If you haven’t already read the profile of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in The New Yorker, you should:  http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/07/11/110711fa_fact_auletta

Almost 600,000 people have already watched Sandberg’s fantastic TED talk, “Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders.”

In her TED talk Sandberg tells women to own their own success and to project more confidence (advice that resonates as both very accurate and urgently needed).

The New Yorker profile really pushes at the external factors that affect women’s career growth, positively and negatively — things like availability of advocates to promote and encourage women leaders.
