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.

Sheila Murphy

I was 40 years old, and life was great. Amazing husband, three kids, financial security. My mom used to say “life is hard”. I never believed her. Fast forward six months. On a beach in Mexico, my husband collapsed and died of a cardiac arrhythmia. I arrived home to tell my eight, six, and two year old that their dad was dead . . . the hardest thing I have ever done. And then I grieved for two long years . . . the hardest job I ever had. I found myself spending too much time worrying about my kids, and I strongly believed that they needed to see me working. BUT I NEEDED FLEXIBILITY. This was the missing link. With the support of two incredible business partners, I started FlexProfessionals. We help talented professionals who have taken career breaks to re-enter the workforce part-time. We help them find meaningful work that allows them flexibility. We also help women and men working full-time to scale back to meet demands at home. In doing so, FlexProfessionals is untapping an incredible talent pool that adds tremendous value to businesses and nonprofits. If you are looking to get back in, to reinvent yourself, to begin a new chapter after a difficult loss, I’d love to connect with you.
