Maggie Jackson 
Biography

As the 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 two daughters.
