Wednesday Live: Gina Bianchini on Lean In Circles, the Power of Groups, New Mightybell Features, and Q+A

Join me for a live and interactive Webinar with Gina Bianchini, founder of Mightybell, on Wednesday, March 20th, to discuss: how Mightybell Lean In Circles are supporting Sherly Sandberg's Lean In book and movement; Gina's LinkedIn post on the power of groups; Mightybell's new ability to add multiple files, videos, and photos to the same post; and your questions about using Mightybell!

Gina was the co-founder of, familiar to many in education, and Mightybell is her latest project in the social space--and one that again has terrific (and free) capabilities for educational use.

Lean In is a global community committed to offering women the encouragement and support to 'lean in" to their ambitions, through community, education, and "circles." Circles are small groups that meet regularly to share and learn together—like a book club focused on helping members achieve their goals--and they are powered by the Mightybell platform (Gina is a core member of the Lean In team). We'll talk with Gina about this project, and about how the technology behind Lean In Circles will potentially provide new ways of thinking about using Mightybell in education. As Rhonda Doyle commented on Gina's post Why Creating a Lean In Circle is Easier Than You Think: "My cheeks hurt from smiling, very excited and amazed at how much Lean In and MightyBell can do to recreate learning communities."

We'll also discuss Gina's recent LinkedIn post "If you want to do something that terrifies you, first find a group" and her vision of the power of purpose-driven groups and how that drives the development of Mightybell. Then we'll dive into Mightybell's new ability to add multiple files, videos, and photos to the same post (a highly requested feature!), and Gina will answer any questions you have about using Mightybell.

There is a Mightybell hosts space where you can ask questions at any time, another space specific for educators at Mightybell in Education, and as well there is a Mightybell Education Showcase and Directory space. Full disclosure: I consult with Mightybell on their education outreach, which is part of Gina's personal commitment to having the broader education community benefit from her social software projects.

I hope you'll join us! If you can't make it, don't worry, there will be a recording (the link will be posted at afterwards).
