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 Power of Courage During Your Search

Conversation with
    Jennifer DiMotta



Courage - what is it, how to develop it and ultimately utilize it to help you make the toughest and most challenging professional and personal life changes. Jennifer DiMotta has been told by many that she has a very untraditional career path in her 20-yr career in eCommerce, Retail and Marketing. She has experienced several moments in her journey, both personally and professionally, where she's had to pull courage out of a hat and move through the challenge. She'll describe what it means to her to learn courage and utilize at the most challenging times in life. 




Jennifer DiMotta has more than 20 years of experience leading retailers to double-digit revenue growth through vision/strategic planning, budgeting and goal governance, and top talent hiring and development. As Vice President of Digital and Omnichannel at Bluemercury, a fast-growing beauty retailer, Jennifer leads the company’s Omnichannel vision and execution developing a strength in digital, marketing and customer-focused strategies. 

Jennifer was awarded the 2014 Colorado’s Most Powerful and Influential Woman Award, has presented on omnichannel and e-commerce at several conferences, including Internet Retailer, eTail and RetailTech and serves as an advisor for several omnichannel and e-commerce vendors. Jennifer has been a guest speaker at the Wharton School of Business on the topic of Omnichannel, Retail, eCommerce and future disruptive digital technology and was a guest speaker at William & Mary, podcasting with the Dean on Omnichannel, Retail and Leadership. Jennifer also has been a speaker of Women Leadership, most notably at Women in Retail Leadership. She also has spoke on several panels about female leadership and career development. 

Prior to launching her retail and eCommerce career, where she held high-ranking positions at Sports Authority, Office Depot, and Hayneedle, Jennifer served in the Army for nine years as a nuclear bio-specialist, and also ran her own personal training business. Leadership development, healthy living and taking care of her family are among Jennifer’s top passion points. When she’s not traveling and visiting her daughter at college, Jennifer and her husband call the Washington, DC-area home, where they enjoy experiencing new restaurants and staying active.
