The prevailing culture tells us that nothing succeeds like excess, that working 80 hours a week is better than working 70, that being plugged in 24/7 is expected, and that sleeping less and multi-tasking more are an express elevator to the top. But there's no better proof that a different model is possible than this conference. Thanks to the female blogosphere and its indomitable energy and reach, we know unequivocally that a woman with a laptop and a voice can change her life -- and dramatically impact others'. On this panel we'll talk with top writers and female executives about ways we can "unplug and rechargeā€ and how, together, we can make it more acceptable for women to build careers on their own terms. Lori Leibovich, executive women's editor of the Huffington Post, moderates this conversation with five women, who are successful on their own terms: Christina Norman, Jane Buckingham, Janice Min, and Susan Stiffleman.
