The Transition Network

About our Chicago Chapter!

We invite you to join our dynamic, growing chapter of women in Chicago and the nearby suburbs.
Make new connections and friends, discover new opportunities, and impact your life and community.



We are an inclusive community of women 50-forward living in Chicago and the nearby suburbs. Our changing life situations lead us to seek new connections, resources and opportunities.

Our members have or had professional careers in a variety of fields. Some are on the path to retirement, while others have launched new businesses or are embarking on encore careers.  A few are retired from work, but active in life.

While we may be at different places in our lives and stages of transitions, we have in common a desire to be part of a community and to live vibrant and fulfilling lives.

Our TTN Chicago Chapter members:
  • Come from diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences

We offer opportunities to:
  • Explore new and enriching interests and activities
  • Develop new friendships and find transition support

TTN Chicago Commitment to Respect, Diversity and Inclusion and Code of Conduct

The Transition Network brings together a diverse group of women with various professional and cultural backgrounds, divergent views and unique perspectives. TTN Chicago is committed to diversity and inclusion and providing a welcoming and respectful environment for everyone. As members and participants in our TTN Chapter activities, we endeavor to create an atmosphere of friendship, respect and care for each other regardless of age, disability, race, ethnicity, cultural background or preferences, political affiliation, religion or belief, sexual orientation, or financial situation. All members and participants are expected to support this commitment and treat others with respect and consideration and interact in a manner that fosters open dialogue and the expression of ideas that is free of bias, discrimination or harassment.
