Sheryl Sandberg’s creativity has played a significant role in Facebook’s massive growth. Serving as Chief Operating Officer since 2008, Sheryl Sandberg saw untapped potential, designed new strategies and brought a dream to life that took the company from a $50 million loss to $40 billion in revenue. In 2016, she had the vision to open up Facebook as a hub of advertising for small businesses, boosting revenue by 57% in just one year. She was the first woman to serve on Facebook’s executive board, developed Google.org for philanthropy while working at Google, and has served on the boards of Starbucks, Disney and Women for Women International. She shared her advice for bringing your creativity and ideas forward with confidence in her groundbreaking book, “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead”, and showed her deeply inspiring ability to turn tragedy into beauty in her second book, “Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy”. Sheryl Sandberg is an icon to all women with big ideas and the drive to bring them to life.
Creative people are problem solvers, dreamers, change-makers.
When no one else can see the way through, creative people make their own. It’s these people who drive progress. They don’t accept the status quo. They see possibility, potential and opportunity where others see roadblocks. Creating new products, leading innovative campaigns, inventing new recipes, designing solutions to global problems, bringing life to emotion through art… creative people make our world come alive. They are pushers of boundaries and catalysts of human progression. Creative women use their expansive minds to achieve things that were thought unachievable, to conceive the inconceivable, and to turn dreams into reality.
We celebrate creative women for their remarkable intelligence and all the ways they use their brains to create our world.
