Scott Maucione: Carter leans in to women’s issues in new partnership

The Defense Department is fighting gender bias in the military and department workplaces by approving "lean-in" group meetings before, during and after work hours. Lean In is a nonprofit started by Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg. The organization closes the leadership gap for women in the workplace by opening dialogue between colleagues. The groups are open to men and women. Lean In says it has more than 24,000 groups in 120 countries. Defense Secretary Ash Carter met with Sandberg and 12 female service members and DoD employees to talk about challenges women face in the workplace. Federal News Radio reporter Scott Maucione discusses with participants how these Lean In groups are helping.
