About the Third Metric

Spectacular new initiative, The Third Metric, from the folks who brought you the Huffington Post:

"About The Third Metric

The current, male-dominated model of success -- which equates success with burnout, sleep deprivation, and driving ourselves into the ground -- isn't working for women, and it's not working for men, either.

On June 6, Arianna Huffington and Mika Brzezinski hosted a conference called "The Third Metric: Redefining Success Beyond Money & Power,” bringing together women -- and a few good men -- to focus on redefining success to include well-being, wisdom, our ability to wonder and our ability to make a difference in the world.

On this page, HuffPost will host an ongoing conversation about The Third Metric and how we can chart a course to a new, more humane, more sustainable definition of success -- for women and for men."
