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 Speaker Series: Bruce Rosenstein



Conversation with


Managing Editor, Leader to Leader; author of
Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way

In this interactive session, Bruce Rosenstein will guide participants through the five-point future planning framework he developed, inspired by the life and work of Peter Drucker (1909-2005), “the father of modern management.” 

We will work individually and in small groups, on several exercises to begin a Creating the Future notebook, a central feature of Bruce’s 2013 book Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way. Key takeaways:

·         Develop and cultivate a forward-focused mindset

·         Understand and plan for “the future that has already happened”

·         Become your own successor through individual success factors

·         Help shape the future of organizations

·         Identify meaningful activities beyond the workplace
