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:  SHIRA HARRINGTON


The Third of a 4-part series

with Shira Harrington at 40Plus.

Boomers Going Solo! It's your time to Launch!

In This Talk We Will Discuss:

If you’re a Baby Boomer, you’ve probably been in perpetual search for that elusive “stable” job which seems to slip through your fingers like jello. The concept of job stability has been evaporating over the last two decades as business competition has tightened and pension programs have vanished. Employers have become slower to hire and faster to terminate the moment revenues are down. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that by 2020, approximately 50% of Americans will be contract workers.  

Looking for real job stability? Consider starting your own business. Think it’s too expensive? Think again. Virtual technology tools have nominal costs and social media has made promoting your business a snap. If you have a passion to serve and want the freedom of unlimited earning potential, now is the perfect time to launch.
