Call over to WME and you’ll find that the female agents and some assorted staffers “are having a day”, as it was explained to me. Usually these Hollywood agencies go on retreat en masse or by department. Instead, WME is doing it by sex for the first time. The women are listening to a keynote address by Sheryl Sandberg, the Facebook COO who oversees the company’s business operations including sales, marketing, business development, human resources, public policy, and communications. She was also instrumental in launching Google.org, Google’s philanthropic arm, and served as Chief of Staff for the U.S. Treasury Department under President Clinton. She sits on the board of The Walt Disney Co.
