Once again, we are offering WOMEN IN TRANSITION – a highly interactive  half-day workshop designed by TTN for women exploring new possibilities, or anticipating or experiencing changes in life or work. 

This workshop will engage you with information about what it means to be in transition and involves small group discussion. You'll deal with provocative questions that will stimulate constructive conversation designed to expand your horizons and support wherever you are in your transition journey. 

The goals of this highly interactive workshop are to:

  • Engage and connect with other women in transition,
  • Learn what it means to be in transition,
  •  Expand your possibilities and options,
  • Know what is important and energizing for you, and 
  • Create a “next steps” action plan.
Sample comments from by recent workshop attendees:

"Just excellent. Perfect balance of helpful materials, guides, tools and discussion and exercises. Facilitated so well -- getting everyone to participate in authentic, meaningful and impactful ways.”

"A very worthwhile experience. The presenter was caring and answered all questions and concerns with detailed and helpful responses.”

The workshop is led by Karen Merson, a highly qualified member of TTN’s NYC Chapter
