Highly skilled, educated and successful, they have achieved visibility, status and influence, but the first large group of American women to define themselves by their work has few, if any, models for retirement. Project Renewment shows women that giving up their careers does not mean giving up who they are. "Renewment" is a term created as an alternative to the word "retirement," associated with negative stereotypes and clichés. The women of Project Renewment believe that retiring is a process of change and increasing self-awareness. As they redirect the commitment and passion previously dedicated to their careers, they transform and reshape their lives. Project Renewment provides an enriched and safe environment in which to explore and confront the challenges as they leave behind a lifetime in the workplace.--From publisher description."@en ;
