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 Perennial Workforce:  Baby Boomers Blooming

Perennials are enduring or continually recurring -- most notably as plant life. If you are retired, considering retirement, or a mature worker looking to get back in the marketplace, you are a member of the Perennial Workforce.  Perennials come back the next season stronger and heartier than the last.

Marva Goldsmith

Consult DSA



I’ve been a member of the Perennial Workforce since 2001.  At the age of 42, I left the Fortune 500 utility company where I had worked since the age of 17, moved to Washington DC and reinvented my professional life to better align with my passion. This electrical engineer became an image and brand consultant! During the next 16 years, I worked with CEOs, nonprofits, government agencies, corporations, incarcerated youth and a host of individuals to help define and implement their intentional image/brand. In 2016, an opportunity to form a new company with a business partner was presented. As CEO of Consult DSA, a Woman-Owned Small Business, I have come full circle, combining logic with creativity to provide management consulting services and organizational effectiveness solutions to a variety of companies and governmental agencies.

An electrical engineer from Michigan State University, Marva obtained a Master in Public Administration from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government at the age of 42. She is a Leadership Coach from the ICF-accredited Georgetown University.
