The Darien YMCA is hosting “Graceful Transitions”, a workshop for women who are considering a return to work after having children. This 4 ½ hour workshop will help women begin to navigate an important transition back to work with grace, openness and a perspective of growth. The workshop will not deliver “tips and tricks”. Rather, it will focus on identifying values, purpose, vision and creating a narrative for change. Participants will emerge inspired, nourished, connected and confident.
