Sandberg was in Dublin to announce an extra 1,000 Facebook jobs in Ireland this year and unveil details of a €1m investment with the Anti-Bullying Centre in DCU to enhance online safety.
At a standing room only event hosted by Core Media at its glitzy 1 Windmill Lane HQ, Sandberg launched a robust defence of her Lean In philosophy.
She appealed to the handful of men in the room, including Patrick Coveney, Greencore CEO - and chairman of Core - to support women in the workforce because it's the smart, not just the right thing to do.
The criticisms, of course, include Sandberg and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg presiding over a non-stop series of data and hate speech scandals that have eroded trust in the social media giant and raised fears its platform is being deployed to manipulate elections.
Last week, Slattery pulled no punches when asked at the Airfinance Journal conference in Dublin whether a recent arduous trek he took to the South Pole had taught him anything new about leadership.
When she first launched Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg faced an instant backlash.
