Associated Press national Workplace columnist from the mid-1990s
until 2001, Maggie Jackson helped pioneer U.S. media coverage of
work-life issues. Her award-winning column ``On the Job" ran in
newspapers around the globe, and she has lectured widely on
workplace and work-life issues. She now contributes to The New York
Times, The Boston Globe and other publications.
Jackson's first book, ``What's
Happening to Home? Balancing Work, Life and Refuge in the
Information Age," was published by Sorin Books in February
2002. Hailed as ``bracing and thoughtful, … part poetic meditation
and part solid reporting" by USA Today, and as ``lively and
thought-provoking" by the Boston Globe, Jackson's book explores
the changing nature of home in this mobile, technological age.
Jackson argues that our struggles with work-life balance will not be
resolved until we begin updating and redefining the meaning of home
today. She interviewed 225 people across the United States and
Sweden for her research.
A graduate of Yale University, and the London School of Economics
with highest honors, she lives in New York City with her husband and
