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.

The Good News for Gray Hair 

-Marketing yourself after 50-

an open forum

with Tom Morris

“Job finding, like almost everything, is a cognitive behavioral process,” says Tom.  “In ‘Good News” I frame key issues so older workers can think and do differently, more effectively, through career transitions.”

Tom’s keynote presentation, “Marketing Yourself After 50: Good News for Gray Hairs” has been heard by thousands. 

He now wants to open the floor up to 40 Plus audience members to share their ideas and experiences about marketing themselves after 50.

With the changing demographics of our population and changing values of both employers and employees, things can work in favor of older workers.

This forum should be fluid, informative and interactive. So please bring your thoughts and experiences when you come.
