BBYO Says No to Being Bossy

Read this story in Cleveland Jewish News

BBYO is partnering with BBYO alumna and Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In Foundation and the Girl Scouts to “Ban Bossy.” The goal of this campaign is to discourage the use of the word “bossy” when referring to girls who take charge, as that image can create barriers for them as they attempt to grow into women leaders.

Led by its B’nai Brith Girls chapters, BBYO will use its platform of more than 40,000 Jewish teens worldwide to share Ban Bossy resources and programs with Jewish young people in grades six to 12 in classrooms and camp settings.
