Troubling new data from @LeanInOrg and @SurveyMonkey: 60 percent of male managers say they’re uncomfortable participating in common job-related activities with women, such as mentoring or even working alone together. ⁣ ⁣ A year ago, that number was 46 percent. This problem is getting worse. ⁣ ⁣ Why is it a problem? Because men are the vast majority of managers and senior leaders. They have the power to change women’s trajectory at work – or not. Men can lift up women by mentoring, sponsoring, hiring, and promoting them. All of these activities require spending time with women – working together, brainstorming, collaborating, and putting the time in to be a real mentor. ⁣ ⁣ The bottom line: not harassing us is not enough – you can’t ignore us either. Now more than ever, we need everyone – especially men – to actively support women. That’s how we get to equality at work – which is good for business and good for everyone. ⁣ ⁣ To read more about our findings, why this matters, and what you can do about it, go to (Link in bio)

The Alabama legislature just voted to ban nearly all abortions in the state. No exception for rape. No exception for incest. Criminal penalties of up to 99 years in prison for doctors.⁣ ⁣ Four other states have passed so-called heartbeat bills that would make abortions illegal after six weeks – before many women even know they’re pregnant and before many serious fetal medical conditions develop.⁣ ⁣ These laws will hurt women. They will hurt families. They are unconstitutional. And they will not end abortion – they will end safe abortion. We cannot go back to the days when women suffered and died because abortion was illegal and dangerous. We have fought too long and too hard to let that happen.⁣ ⁣ Health care, including reproductive health care, is a human right. So is the right to choose whether and when to become a mother. I’ve been proud to stand with those fighting for women’s equality, health, and freedom for decades – and I’m proud to stand with them today. This is as urgent as it gets.

Congrats to Brian Weisfeld and Nicole C. Kear on the release of @TheStartupSquad! This fun, empowering story follows four girls in middle school as they run a lemonade stand to raise money for their class trip. Like all ventures, their small business faces good and bad days, and through entrepreneurship, the girls learn about friendship, bouncing back from setbacks, and the importance of⁣ leaning on each other for support. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ It’s a story with a lesson I love: girls mean business. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!

Today is Mother’s Day — a day to honor and show gratitude for those who have loved and nurtured us, and set an example of the kind of adults we could become. Every day, I aspire to live up to the example my mom @Adele.Sandberg sets of living a life of giving to others, gratitude, and joy.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Let’s seize this chance to celebrate every variety of “Mom”— mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, aunts, godmothers, even dads who’ve taken on the role of mom. They’re all pouring their love and care into the next generation, and this is a great day to say thank you.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ And let’s remember those who are having a hard time feeling celebratory today — perhaps because they are coping with loss, estranged from family, or struggling to become moms.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ If you’re finding today tough, you’re not alone — and I hope you find comfort in these messages from @OptionB and @papyrus. Wrap yourself in joyful memories if you can, and lean on those around you. #OptionBThere

When I think of leaders paving the way for the next generation of women, I think of Deborah Lee James.⁣ ⁣ Deborah has followed her own brand of leadership all the way to the highest levels of public service. She was the 23rd Secretary of the US Air Force -- the second woman ever to hold that post. As Secretary, Deborah made life-and-death decisions about national security and managed a workforce of 660,000 people. She served with honor and skill -- and along the way, she made the military a better place for women. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Back in 2015, she joined me for a @LeanInOrg Circle meeting at the Pentagon. She was in listening mode, drinking up what every woman in the room had to say about their experiences at the Pentagon, their career highs and lows, and their dreams for their futures. A few weeks later, Deborah launched a Circle of her own. Then she launched another one. For the rest of her time as Secretary, Deborah met with her two Circles -- one for officers, one for enlisted personnel -- every month. It sent a powerful signal to the entire US military that this leader sought their input and was invested in their success.⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Today, Deborah serves on the advisory board of Lean In. And Lean In’s military network of Circles has more than 2,000 members and counting, based everywhere from Minnesota to South Korea. I’m so grateful for Deborah’s contributions to the Lean In community. She’s wise, she’s strong, she’s taken on huge challenges, and she’s learned so much along the way. That’s why I’m glad Deborah’s written Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success. Her story and advice are sure to inspire others, like she’s inspired me.

There is a maternal mortality crisis happening – and not just in other countries, right here in the U.S. In fact, while maternal death rates have fallen worldwide since 2000, they’re actually rising in America. For Black and Native American moms, the chances of dying from pregnancy-related causes are particularly high. This is absolutely unacceptable. We have the know-how and the resources to save moms. The @rockefellerfdn’s #WithoutMom campaign seeks to turn this crisis around. This Mother’s Day, learn more about their work – because the world loses when we lose mothers.

Some of my best days at work are spent with the small businesses that use our platforms to grow, create jobs and bring people together. During National Small Business Week, I’m celebrating them and all they do to make a difference in their communities. ⁣ ⁣ One of my favorite examples is @SmallAxePeppers in the Bronx. They make hot sauce with peppers grown in local gardens, which helps gardeners earn an income and maintain their plots. Their business has grown so much that they now work with gardens from coast to coast.⁣ ⁣ What’s your favorite small business? #smallbusinessweek

Mother’s Day is around the corner — and for many, it’s a day of joy and togetherness. But for others — like people coping with loss especially of a mother or a child, struggling with infertility, or feeling left out of family celebrations — it can be a tough day. When that’s the case for someone we care about, we want to be there for them in ways that really help.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Today, @OptionB kicks off #OptionBThere for Mother’s Day. This is an annual program focused on helping people facing adversity feel less alone — and giving all of us the tools to help support friends and loved ones who need it most.⁣ At, you’ll find concrete, expert advice on how to be kind to others this holiday — from not falling into the trap of wishing every woman “Happy Mother’s Day” to the simple act of sending a grieving loved one the message “I’m here for you today.” For those of you who are feeling sad this Mother’s Day, you’re not alone — and we have expert advice on how to spend the day on your own terms as well as an online community ready to offer support. ⁣⁣ ⁣ This Mother’s Day, I hope all can seek joy where possible, face sadness openly, be kind to ourselves, and lean on each other. We’re all in this together. (Link in bio)

Four years ago today, we lost my husband Dave. Every day, we miss him deeply. And we constantly look for ways to lift up the causes he cared about and do the good he would be doing if he were still with us.⁣ ⁣ It’s in that spirit that I’m thrilled to announce the second class of Goldberg Scholars – 15 high school seniors ready to take the world by storm.⁣ ⁣ We launched this program on what would have been Dave’s 50th birthday nearly two years ago. Dave was a generous mentor, a huge believer in education, and the center of a big-hearted community that always showed up for each other. To continue his legacy, his mother Paula, brother Rob and I created something Dave would have loved: a scholarship and mentorship program for talented young people eager to make their mark at college and beyond.⁣ ⁣ The Goldie Scholars come from KIPP schools nationwide because Dave was a big fan of KIPP. They all have a mentor from among Dave’s friends and family – once again, Dave’s community is showing up. And they all share Dave’s best qualities: leadership, resilience, achievement, generosity, kindness, independent thinking, and entrepreneurial spirit.⁣ ⁣ The Year 1 Goldie Scholars are wrapping up their first years at college. Miguel Reyna at Vanderbilt says his mentor “has already helped me so much – giving me advice on college life, feedback on papers, and even helping me secure a summer internship.” Jannina Martinez at Duke says that after the scholars’ Leadership Weekend, “I saw a huge world of possibilities, a large network of support to back me up, and I finally became comfortable in being vulnerable enough to expand my previous limitations.”⁣ ⁣ Now we’re on to Year 2, with 15 new scholars joining us. I’m so excited to get to know them. And I’m grateful to the mentors, connectors, KIPP leaders, and the scholars themselves for making this program strong.⁣ ⁣ I learned from losing Dave that even when people we love are gone, we can keep their legacies alive through the work we do in their name. That’s how we extend their lives and impact. I – and everyone who loved Dave – miss him with all our hearts. Knowing that his memory can help improve other’s lives means the world to us.

Excited that @Facebook has been named one of the top 50 places to work for indigenous STEM professionals by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. This honor is a testament to the incredible Native American community that works at Facebook.⁣⁣ ⁣ Four years ago, Jessica and Jordan Skye Paul started an internal group to connect Native American Facebookers with each other and raise awareness about their culture. Since then, Jessica and the group’s 200+ members have dedicated their time to both celebrating their heritage and to helping Native Americans learn about job opportunities in technology. ⁣⁣ ⁣ My deepest thanks to Jessica and everyone at Facebook for building communities that matter inside and outside our company. You inspire me every day. at Facebook HQ

We just shared an update on Facebook's business over the last quarter. We’re focused on making significant investments in safety and security while continuing to create great experiences for people and businesses. There are more than 7 million active advertisers across our services and today we’re announcing that 3 million advertisers are using ads in Stories across Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ @Rothys is one of my favorite examples. They got their start in 2016 at a one-day pop-up at a farmer’s market selling comfortable, stylish shoes made from recycled plastic bottles. One of the main ways they find new customers is through Facebook and Instagram and after a recent ad campaign, they saw a 75% increase in sales. They’re also expanding internationally and they have almost tripled their number of employees in one year – incredible. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Thank you to all of our clients around the world for their partnership and valuable feedback. And thank you to our global team that’s working hard to make progress on the social issues facing the internet and our company while improving Facebook for the people and partners who are at the core of what we do.⁣
