The Women in Transition Project will meet the first Friday of every month for an informal lunch. The Project will help members make the most of their next transition by offering a space for members to share their goals, explore possibilities, and address the anxieties that often accompany change. By partnering with other WWBA committees the Project will help forge supportive connections among members. The networking and mentoring opportunities offered by the Women in Transition Project are intended to help women in transition harness the power of change to create their best professional life.

Interview of the Month
An Interview with
by Lisa Denig, Esq.
It may be a bit cliché, but it is difficult not to focus on thankfulness during the month of November. While we tend to “give thanks” a bit more this month than any other month, numerous research studies have found that having an “attitude of gratitude” can make one feel healthier, stave off depression, build self-esteem, and even result in better sleeping habits.
While I generally consider myself an extremely grateful person on a daily basis, quite often I fail to specifically name those people or entities in my life that I appreciate most. So I am going to get quite personal in this column and thank specifically those people and groups that deserve a little “shout out.”
