SHERYL Sandberg, who has served as COO of Facebook’s parent company Meta for fourteen years, is resigning from her position.
Her spouse Dave Goldberg passed away seven years prior to the relocation.
Who is Sheryl Sandberg?
After spending four years working for Google, Sheryl Sandberg joined Facebook’s founding team in 2008 and has been there ever since.
She and Zuckerberg, who was only 23 at the time, worked together to develop the business into one of the most user-friendly search engines and convert Facebook into one of the most lucrative social networks.
In 2013, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, Sandberg’s best-selling book that encouraged women to stand up for themselves at work, was released. Sandberg has long been a champion for women’s rights.
Sandberg launched the Learning to Give foundation, which instructs young people on how to join charitable organisations, in addition to being an advocate for women’s rights.
The goal of the foundation is to “assist young people in growing in generosity and agency for their ongoing roles in the community.”
The Washington Post said that Sandberg, who has opted to leave her post at Meta, will not only concentrate on her charitable initiatives but also get remarried to marketing executive Tom Bernthal.
On June 1st, 2022, she posted on Facebook, saying, “When I took this job in 2008, I hoped I would be in this role for five years. It is now, fourteen years later, time for me to pen the next section of
As she continued, Sandberg, who is transitioning to the next phase of her life, said, “I have learnt no one is ever really certain what the future will hold.
Who was Sheryl Sandberg’s late husband?
Prior to his untimely death in 2015, Sandberg’s late husband Dave Goldberg served as both husband and CEO of SurveyMonkey.
With his mother, a teacher, and his younger brother, Goldberg was raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Goldberg learned priceless life lessons from his mother while growing up as he and his brother assisted her in submitting paperwork for a charity organisation she founded for parents of disadvantaged children.
Considering the experience, Goldberg remarked in a 2012 op-ed post for the New York Times, “For a long time I didn’t recognise that although my mother is in the nonprofit sector, she’s an entrepreneur,” adding, “Her second career shaped the course my life went.”
Goldberg left his family behind to enrol at Harvard University, where he earned a degree in history and government.
He remarked that his experience working on Michael Dukakis’ 1988 presidential campaign during his junior year showed him that politics was not his area of interest.
After graduating, Goldberg accepted a position with Capitol Records, although he later said that he thought his hiring was contingent on the firm “realising that music was (his) passion.”
2009 saw the hiring of Goldberg to work for SurveyMonkey, a business that developed a survey platform that lets users create and analyse survey data.
He believed that working as an entrepreneur for the company would give him a sense of accomplishment.
“I may no longer be that 26-year-old who started an online music site, but I’m still interested in starting small on something that can make an impact, and I still believe in the triumph of hope over experience.
“That’s what being an entrepreneur means,” Goldberg wrote.
