"We've all bought into this male definition of success, money and power, and it's not working. It's not working for men, and it's not working for women. It's not working for anyone," Arianna Huffington, president and editor in chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, said in an appearance on the Today show Wednesday.
So what is the solution?
That question is the focus of The Huffington Post's first ever women's conference, "The Third Metric: Redefining Success Beyond Money & Power," taking place in New York City on June 6.
Hosted by Arianna and Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," the day will feature conversations with influencers and luminaries on topics ranging from mindful leadership to reworking work to how men especially can adopt a saner, more balanced approach to success (click here for the full schedule).

"I would like to know how many women in this room work for CEOs that are this advanced?"
"Look, we need to make a new world, a new world that works for all of us."

"We men want in so thank you for inviting us to this conference."
NEW YORK -- Sallie Krawcheck was one of the most powerful women on Wall Street until she became a casualty of the post-financial crisis shakeup at Bank of America. But Krawcheck doesn’t lament her fall. Instead she was “grateful,” the former executive told the audience Thursday at the Third Metric Conference hosted by Arianna Huffington and Mika Brzezinski.
“I got grateful when I got fired,” Krawcheck said. “I said ‘how many people get to get fired and it’s on the front page of The Wall Street Journal?’”
"I'm actually looking for a wife."
Moderated by Mika Brzezinski, this discussion will feature artist and writer Brian Andreas, Harvard Business School professor Bill George, actor Adrian Grenier, Rep. Tim Ryan, "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough, and Mediabrands CEO Matt Seiler.
"My mom taught me to have standards but not expectations."
"I'm such a believer that the world sees you the way you see yourself."
"I know now that I can't go out into the world and help someone else unless I'm taking care of myself."
