Connections: Does "leaning in" work?

Remember when Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg told women to “lean in?” This week, Michelle Obama said that stuff doesn’t always work, and she got a big round of applause when she said it.

We talk to a panel of women about the concept of “leaning in.” In studio:

  • Patricia Cruz-Irving, director of communications for Senator Rich Funke
  • Rebecca Leclair, former broadcast journalist now running her own communications consulting business
  • Jen Lunsford, attorney with Segar & Sciortino and former candidate for the 55th Senate District
