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 Speaker: Jenny DuFresne


with Jenny DuFresne

There you were, going along, everything was in order. Then, BAM! Things fell apart.  When life blindsides you it can be emotionally, spiritually, and physically devastating.

You may question everything—and have confidence in very little. When things fall apart is actually a great time to pause.

Yes, pause. 

What you do during the pause can create a powerful and fulfilling life. 

Reinvention is a powerful engine to fuel your next life chapter.
