The popularity of Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has in no small way also made its Chief Operating Officer, Sheryl Sandberg, a more high-profile executive. This in turn has given her a more noticed voiced particularly in issues such as equality in the workplace which Sandberg has been outspoken in the past about.
In an interview with Emily Chang for Bloomberg, the Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) executive was asked whether she would view entering politics as a way to have more influence and bring about the changes in the world that she is working on.
It looks like Sandberg has no plans to enter the political arena.
“I feel like I’m leaning in pretty hard,” Sandberg tells Chang, referencing her principle of leaning in from her book with the same title.
As the Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) official made it apparent that she has no interest at the moment to enter into politics, Sir Richard Branson, the billionaire entrepreneur who Chang was also interviewing, agreed that Sandberg is in a better position inside Facebook to support changes in the world.
“I don’t think she should. I do think she has the best of both worlds. She is running maybe the most influential company in the world which could make the most incredible difference in the world on a global basis. She’s able to speak out. She’s got financial strength to do it. She’s not tied to a political party. The moment you get tied to a political party, everyone questions your motive even if you were absolutely genuine about it. So I would recommend she doesn’t change her job,” Branson tells Chang.
Meanwhile, the Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) COO also says that we should definitely try to see what would happen to the world if half of countries and half of our companies were run by women and half our homes were run by men because “we might get a more peaceful, more productive happier world”.
As for Hillary Clinton running for president, Sandberg says that she is “thrilled” whenever “a woman runs for office anywhere in the world whether it’s the local state government or county office or all the way up to our presidency.”
She also says that it is “great” that this is the first time in U.S. history we have ever had two women running.
