CBIZ Women's Advantage (CWA)
in Memphis has launched a book club open to both men and women, led by two CWA Executive Board members, Linda Lauer and Megan Murdock.
The introduction of a professional book club in the Memphis office comes with immense support from Senior Managing Director, Eustis Corrigan. The first book to be discussed in the program is Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg.
Linda Lauer notes the overall takeaway from the first meeting: "We came to the conclusion that no matter what we focused on (in the book) - work/life balance, confidence, leadership, prioritizing responsibilities - it never pertained to one gender."
CWA believes that reading good books can challenge us, inspire us, and make us hungry for more. Research tells us that the best way to remember new ideas and put them into action is to share our thoughts and ideas with someone else. In fact, participating in a book discussion increases retention by 70 percent.
