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.

Finding Breathing Room in a Tight Job Market

Speaker Website:

Three strategies for gaining the perspective and the strength to find the right place for yourself in a tough job market.

Bio – August 2008

As an educator, communicator and manager, Ms Morgan-Jaffe has worked for over 30 years to help others achieve results. As a result she has a broad reach of skills and experience.

In the field of communications, she was a graphic designer and art director for 15 years. During this time she taught herself the craft of graphic design before and after computers and internet, ran her own business, worked as an art director for Time-Life Books and various area magazines, and now runs a web services firm that develops powerful software organizations can use to manage business effectively.

In the field of education, Cindy graduated from Hampshire College where she studied architecture and environmental psychology. At 40, she returned to school to get a masters degree in school counseling from George Washington University with a focus on career development for young people. She worked for a career development firm called MasteryWorks for 5 yrs where she was a director of the youth services division and helped develop a curriculum called InternSmart.

From there she started her own business called The Career Studio offering career counseling, resume writing and other career services. To augment a struggling start-up practice, she became a part-time manager for Prep-Matters, an SAT and Educational Counseling service.

As a manager, Ms. Morgan-Jaffe dedicates herself to understanding how organizations and individuals succeed. She has a masters degree from George Washington University in career development and has worked with a variety of organizations and individuals to help them be more effective in their work.

Today, Cindy combines all three competencies as part owner of a software as a service company called Orchid.

Personally, Cindy has five children, ranging in ages from 21 down to a set of 7-year-old twins. She grew up in Jackson Hole Wyoming, enjoys the outdoors, and never has the perfect hair day.

Plan to join us after the meeting for networking.  Many of us carry our conversations to lunch at the nearby Brookings Institution.

Attire is business casual, recruiters are often present, so we ask all Monday Speaker attendees to contribute to the professional standards and objectives of this important networking meeting.

Doors open at 9:30 for networking and the program starts promptly at 10:00.
