The six TechWomen Change Agent Scholars were fortunate to be in the audience for Sheryl Sandberg’s keynote address this morning at the Grace Hopper Celebration for Women in Computing. Sheryl spoke to an audience of technical women, but her message resonated for women in every field. We list our favorite bits of wisdom below.

“The number one driver of careers is growth, and there is no other industry in the world that is growing as quickly as tech.”
“What would you do if you weren’t afraid? Ask yourself and go do it.”
“Don’t leave before you leave. Best way to make room for yourself is to lean all the way in, until you have a real decision to make.”
“Dream big. We have an ambition gap…which results in an achievement gap.”
“Warren Buffet: One reason I was so successful was because I was competing with only half the population.”
