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.

Leverage Your Passions to Fuel Your Career Search

Conversation with
Edna Figueroa

Developing a strong self-concept, strengthening leadership skills, and pursuing your passion are essential to creating more positive outcomes in your job search.

We must proactively devise a system to develop and nurture our definition of self and replace the negative stories we have told ourselves that hold us back. If we isolate ourselves or cut short the journey to developing a strong concept of self, we can sabotage our most important opportunities in life and business, including being able to execute a successful job search.

Come and learn intelligent strategies to help you identify the leader you “must” become to help create the future you desire, versus the one that would come by default. For instance, LinkedIn’s talent research shows that today’s most in-demand skills weren’t even on the list three years ago.



Join us to engage in a powerful dialogue and discussion

  • Discover how to ignite the leader in you. Your “self-concept” is the foundation to success and a powerful source to help strengthening your leadership skills.
  • Identify strengths and gaps so you can show up powerfully in life.
  • Cultivate an effective leadership style.
  • Learn more about the interplay of self-concept, leadership traits, passion, and the organization.
  • Stay competitive and motivated to accomplish a successful job search.
