Thanks! You've taken the 1st step.

Novofemina is hosting a Research Jam from January 1, 2013 through March 1, 2013. Our goal is to involve as many people as possible in a discussion about women's transition. We're thrilled you are joining us. The survey should only take a few minutes.

* 1. Have you ever transitioned? Novofemina defines transition as "a re-definition of your notion of self."

* 2. How many times have you transitioned?

* 3. Describe your most recent transition. Please consider adding information about 'why it started,' 'how long it lasted,' 'what impact it had on your life,' and 'how it felt.'

* 4. What were your transition's triggers? Click on all that apply.

* 5. If you answered yes to question #1, do you feel stuck in your current transition?

* 6. In your current or past transition did you experience barriers?

* 7. If yes, can you tell us a little about the barriers you experienced? Check all that apply.

Lack of appropriate skills to land the job I want
Lack of flexibility to allow me to meet personal demands
Fear of unknown
Not sure how to start

* 8. As you look ahead do you think you'll experience transition again?

* 9. If you answered yes to question 8, what is your biggest fear in facing another transition?

* 11. Would you like to be interviewed for Novofemina's online columns or other research? If so, please provide your contact information. We'd be delighted to explore this with you!
