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.

Successfully Overcoming Age as a Perceived Disability in Today’s Workplace

Featured Speaker Natasha Pierre

Conversation 

with 

Natasha Pierre

Natasha is a speaker, coach and author who lives in Florida, but who has also lived in the DC area in the past. She currently works for a nonprofit and helps job seekers that have physical and mental disabilities find fulfilling work.

      
 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

 

Natasha A. Pierre is an award winning speaker and certified life coach with over 20 years of experience in providing coaching, training and development to individuals, small businesses and corporations. She has successfully assisted audiences across the country with gaining clarity and employing strategy for their personal and professional lives.


Certified as a supported employment specialist, Pierre often coaches jobseekers with varying disabilities, and she assists them with securing and maintaining meaningful positions.  


“Physical and mental disabilities can be as much of a barrier to employment as perceived disabilities such as age and obesity,” states Pierre.  ”Simply sending a resume and passively hoping for a call is no longer a best practice.  Jobseekers must be very deliberate and creative to ensure their value speaks louder than the disability.”


Pierre’s varied background also includes several successful business ventures starting at age 9 years, producing small business seminars, radio and TV broadcasting and working as an actress with the Screen Actors Guild.  In addition to her professional experience, Natasha graduated from Duquesne University with a B.A. in Mass Communications.
