Work-life balance is a continuing struggle for female professionals across industries, but in an article published today in Fortune’s Broadsheet newsletter and on Fortune.com, Intel Capital’s Lisa Lambert and former Yahoo! CEO Carol Bartz stress the importance of doing less and networking more for a more fruitful professional life. Their thesis: leadership today is defined not just by how many hours are spent at a desk, but the ability to connect with others and build lasting professional relationships. As it becomes clear that networking is a key to success, new opportunities for women are being made possible through groups such as UPWARD, a community of like-minded female professionals founded by Lambert. Bartz and Lambert will convene a conversation on the topics related to this article at an UPWARD networking event for more than 600 female executives on Nov. 20 in Silicon Valley.
