Sandberg will promote the concept of female empowerment, as set out in her best selling book “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead,” to students at the Taipei First Girls' High School, according to CommonWealth Magazine, which published the Chinese version of the book in early September.
The 44 year-old is scheduled to give a speech and then take questions from the students and Taiwanese media, CommonWealth reported. The event will also be broadcast live on YouTube and aired on Taiwan Public Television Service, it added.
A former chief of staff to the United States Secretary of the Treasury, Sandberg worked for Google Inc. before joining Facebook in 2008. She was named to Fortune's 2012 list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business.
