CLEVELAND — Cuyahoga Community College is launching “Women in Transition,” a free online class to empower women in their pursuit of education, training and a career.

Interactive online sessions will take place from 10 a.m. to noon, three days a week. One session runs Monday to Wednesday; the other runs Tuesday to Thursday.

The noncredit program is free and open to the public. Participants will build confidence and skills through classes on personal development, career exploration and computer literacy. The course is designed for any woman who find herself in a transitional period of her life, such as a career change or return to the workforce.
