Empowering Experienced Professionals for Successful Career Transitions
Statement of Support:
As an organization that empowers experienced professionals, managers, and executives for successful career transitions, 40Plus of Greater Washington serves professionals of all races and ethnicities. We stand firm in our support of all people who have been affected by the horrendous racist and violent acts in our country.
We condemn the police brutality that led to the tragic and needless death of George Floyd, along with others before him such as Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile and Eric Garner. We also condemn the violence, bigotry and systemic racism that has occurred during the past 400 years, particularly against black men and women in our nation. Furthermore, we stand firmly against discrimination of any kind including age discrimination, which frustrates many of our members during their search for new employment.
We offer our condolences to the family of George Floyd, his friends and loved ones. As a way to honor his memory, we stand ready to work with other agencies and community-based organizations, along with the community at large, to end injustice in all its forms against the oppressed and all persons of color.
Monday Morning Speakers
Our speakers are experts who cover topics of interest to those seeking a new job. The meeting begins with informal networking at 9:45 AM. We ask everyone to be seated by 9:55 AM so that the speaker can start promptly at 10:00 AM.
Take advantage of the networking opportunity with the 40Plus members, other guests, and the speaker. Monday Speakers meetings also provide an opportunity for anyone who is considering joining 40Plus to get to know us.
Plan to join us after each speaker meeting for networking. Many of us carry our conversations to lunch at nearby affordable eateries.
