In her post, Sandberg shared the story of Sphoorti, a Network Leader with Lean in Bangalore. With the onset of the pandemic many women in her community resigned as they were unable to juggle demands of their professional and personal lives.

“She reached out to their husbands and family members to explain the importance of stepping up at home, and connected them to families who were modeling ways of sharing work equitably. Thanks to her efforts, almost all of the women who left their workplaces are now working full time,” explains the caption.
