Join us Tuesday at noon for a virtual book club. We’ll be talking about Sheryl Sandberg’s book “Lean In.” We’ll discuss the gender gap in Seattle leadership and how to get to an equal world based on the ideas Sandberg raises in her book. Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook.

Here is my column that ran last Thursday about Sandberg’s book and the gender gap in Seattle leadership. This is a follow up blog post featuring some thoughts from U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene and former Microsoft executive about whether tech companies are indifferent to women in the workplace.

Update 1:52 p.m. 3/25/13:
