Getty Images launched the “Lean In Collection” Monday in partnership with LeanIn.org which features more than 2,500 photos of female leadership in contemporary work and life.
The project began when Pam Grossman, director of visual trends at Getty Images, commissioned a study that would track the changes in the representation of girls and women in the media. The study turned into a presentation which Grossman later shared with Sheryl Sandberg and the Lean In team at Facebook Headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., last fall.
“This is such a big passion project for all of us, and cheesy as it sounds, by showing people powerful images of women we thought maybe we could actually change the world,” Grossman told BuzzFeed.
