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.

A delightfully presented workshop that will illustrate the subtle nuances of today’s best social networking website. Attendees will get tips on creating attractive profiles that keep the job offers rolling in. They will learn strategies to help position themselves and their skills to interested recruiters and employers.

Marvin is dedicated to providing business owners with the professional attention necessary to help them achieve their business goals, offering continued service as their needs change.

We're very happy to use our unique interpretations of proven leadership methodologies in our work with successful business owners and top sales producers. Together we achieve greater rewards as we help our clients uncover their hidden potential” says the Coach.
