Your TTN Chicago Chapter Continues to be here for you!

We offer our members and prospective members a number of ways to connect through small, in-person group gatherings. We have group lunches, Explore Chicago! adventures, happy hours and some of our Special Interest Groups are also meeting in person. (We continue to follow CDC guidelines, e.g. masks for unvaccinated, for any in-person activities.)
Whether you are looking for a way to meet new women friends, do things together with other women your age and have meaningful conversations, or are exploring ways to navigate life's transitions and challenges, The Transition Network Chicago Chapter is the perfect organization for you! Please feel free to contact our Chapter Chair, Kimberly Mulcahy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

· Enhancing skills for successfully navigating change
· Expanding possibilities and options
· Knowing how to create a meaningful life
· Creating a “next steps” action plan
Connection CureThe Connection Cure is a cross-country human engagement project that explores face-to-face connection as a catalyst for healing and wellness.
Lisa Daron Grossman, founder of The Connection Cure, has made it her life's work to listen, learn, and engage in conversations around connection.
TTN Chicago is honored to host Lisa for her visit to Chicago, where she will explore face-to-face connection as a catalyst for healing and wellness.
Ageism and Feeling Invisible
This animated conversation facilitated by TTN Chicago members Roni Buckley and Joy Loverde and attended by over 30 women was centered around four simple yet powerful questions:
- Have you experienced ageism in your life?
- What beliefs about ageism do you carry with you?
- What would an age-blind society look like?
- How will you respond to ageism?
Career Reboot Members Event
There are more women over 50 in the US today than at any other point in history, They are working longer, exploring opportunities for career transitions and their next act.
Career Coach Megan Walls, who has coached numerous women in career transitions, offered ideas and answered members' questions about navigating and anticipating a career move.
Special Interest Groups
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are topic- or activity-focused and bring together members who share similar interests. SIGs are as varied as the members who think them
up. Current SIGs include golf, mahjong, exploring Chicago, dining, health and wellness, theater, and books.
TTN Chicago social events range from a Saturday morning coffee break to Holiday High Tea! Other activities include holiday potluck gatherings and Happy Hours.
Connecting and contributing to the community is an important tenet of TTN Chicago.
