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.

Buried in Business Cards? How to Re-connect and Follow Up with Ease

So you've collected all those business cards. Now what?

You've introduced yourself and answered "What do you do?" dozens of times. Now what?

What are good "next steps" with the people you meet?

How can you teach people about your character and competence so you build trust and credibility?

What is the one tool that when used will make follow-up natural and easy?

Certified leadership coach and professional speaker, Jeanine Cogan will share with you the secrets of follow-up at this meeting. Turn networking into something you love . . . rather than loathe!


Jeanine Cogan has coached a wide array of professionals including CEO’s, small business owners, government employees, writers, musicians, artists, employees of non-profit organizations, teachers, and professors.

Jeanine received her training in coaching with Newfield Network, a certified executive coaching program. She is also trained as a social psychologist, earning a doctorate degree from the University of Vermont in 1993. She has coached business students at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University and is part of the faculty of the Center for Continuing and Professional Education at Georgetown University.

Dr. Cogan’s extensive background along with her warm and authentic style is a winning combination for a range of professional arenas. The diverse organizations and companies that have requested her expertise demonstrate her skill at tailoring a message and/or service to fit the audience.

Dr. Cogan’s most extensive organizational development project was to create a new non-profit organization, the Eating Disorders Coalition for Research, Policy & Action with a team of professionals. This Coalition grew from 5 founding organizations to 22 and captured the attention of important policy makers in less than three years. As consultant to this project Dr. Cogan facilitated the successful creation of a vision, mission statement, annual and five-year goals, a board of directors, and the bylaws. She prompted crucial conversations to enable the organization to expand, change and succeed.

Over her career she has received numerous awards. In 1998 she received a highly competitive policy award from the American Psychological Association as the Baily Science Congressional Fellow where she worked for a Member of Congress.
