I emerged from my work on understanding transition with a tremendous data set and a newfound belief about the importance of transition. The possibility for transition was everywhere. Emotions surrounded it. Few discussed it. I was certain, thanks to my discovery work, that transition represented an enormous opportunity for women. It was immediately apparent that transition inspired women. It left them energized and exhilarated. I rarely heard of women for whom it did not offer something meaningful—like courage or confidence or peace. I felt enormous gratitude in my own life for what this understanding had introduced to me. Without searching for it—in fact nearly missing it—transition had given me a gift. With this gift and an unshakable belief in transition’s value for women, I knew immediately how I could best share my learnings with other women.
