Tackling bullying


Yesterday I attended a talk by Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer for facebook. She is founder of LeanIn.Org, which offers women ongoing inspiration and support to help them achieve their goals. In 2012, she was named in the Time 100, an annual list of the most influential people in the world according to Time magazine. DCU’s president Professor Brian MacCraith (@muirtheimhne) tweeted the following:

Delighted to welcome @facebook COO @sherylsandberg to @DublinCityUni today to announce a €1m partnership with DCU @AntiBullyingCen & @SpunOut to tackle cyberbullying.

He also tweeted:

During her visit to @DublinCityUni today, @sherylsandberg of @facebook participated in a workshop for post-primary teachers organised by DCU’s @AntiBullyingCen. She heard at first hand about the cyberbullying challenges faced by those teachers.

More on her visit can be found on the DCU website.
