Circles are one of the key programs offered by LeanIn.Org. There are currently more than 43,000 Circles worldwide in over 170 different countries. A Circle is a small group of colleagues who meet regularly to learn new skills, provide mentorship, and support each other’s goals.
Whether your goal is skill development, retention, or mentorship at scale, you can tailor your Circles program to complement your existing diversity and inclusion efforts and achieve your organizational goals.
Here’s some more information about how Circles usually work at companies:
- Members meet in small groups about once a month to support one other and learn new skills.
- Circles can meet anywhere in or outside of work. Some meet over lunch, in offices, or virtually with employees from several locations.
- We make it easy. From meeting guides to an online platform that connects your Circles, we provide all the tools you need to run Circles–for free!
- We know they work: 86% of members credit their Circle with a positive change in their lives.
