TED Talk: Why we have too few women leaders by Sheryl Sandberg

Interesting takeaways:

Women do not negotiate for themselves in the workforce. 57% of men negotiate for salary whereas only 7% of women do.

Women underestimate themselves and tend to attribute success to other external factors. – someone helped them, they got lucky, they worked really hard. Men say “I’m awesome”.

We have a choice to succeed and be liked for our accomplishments.
No one gets the promotion if they don’t feel they deserve or know or believe in themselves. Own your own success.
Keep your foot on the gas pedal.
