Nancy B. Rapoport is the Gordon Silver Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.
On Feb. 13, she led a University-wide discussion on Sheryl Sandberg's book Lean In. The event, sponsored by the UNLV Women's Council, was attended by female faculty.
Lean In focuses on encouraging women to pursue their goals and aims to change the conversation from what they can't do to what they can.
Jean Sternlight, the Michael and Sonja Saltman Professor of Law and Director of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution, will also speak at a Women's Council event later this semester. Her talk, scheduled for April 9, will focus on negotiating strategies for women.
