    About the Host Organizations
        

    Established in 1956, Foundation Center is the leading source of information about philanthropy worldwide. Through data, analysis, and training, it connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to succeed.

    Foundation Center maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. and, increasingly, global grant makers and their grants — a robust, accessible knowledge bank for the sector. It also operates research, education, and training programs designed to advance knowledge of philanthropy at every level.

    Careers In Nonprofits is built on the idea that great people want to work with great causes. There are many talented candidates who have a passion for working with nonprofits but not many resources focused on nonprofit careers. We connect the best people with the best causes. Our team of nonprofit career professionals has years of experience matching candidates with nonprofit organizations. Serving Chicago, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C., we have extensive networks of connections and strategic partnerships with nonprofit organizations.



          

    40Plus is a non-profit, all volunteer organization offering a proven system of hands-on training, peer support, networking, volunteering, and talks by experts on topics of interest to professionals in career transition. 40Plus has helped more than 8,000 area professionals land rewarding jobs and new careers since its founding in 1953.

    40Plus was founded during the Great Depression.  In 1939, Henry Simler, an executive with the Remington Rand company, created a “40 Plus Committee” at New York City’s Sales Executive Club to help over-40 executives who were having difficulty finding jobs.

    Four American giants formed the New York organization’s first Advisory Board: Tom Watson, president and founder of IBM; James Cash Penney, founder of J.C. Penney & Co.; Arthur Godfrey, popular radio and TV personality; and Norman Vincent Peale, minister, inspirational speaker, and author of The Power of Positive Thinking. The concept spread to cities throughout the U.S.

    They realized that a program combining training, motivation, and support, led by and for unemployed people, would work wonders.  That's still true today.

    Reading Lean In and Unfinished Business After Forty  


    The Wisdom of Sheryl Sandberg and Anne-Marie Slaughter for Professional Transitions in Middle-Age and Beyond


    Conversation with KATHLYN TAYLOR GAUBATZ

    Through forceful ideas presented in their books Lean In and Unfinished Business, Sheryl Sandberg and Anne-Marie Slaughter have sparked an exciting conversation about the roles of men and women in the workplace and the home. 

    Don’t worry if you haven’t had time to read these important books.  In this lively conversation:

    ·         We will discuss the most interesting and provocative lessons from Sandberg, who focuses on the “leadership ambition gap” between women and men, and Slaughter, who takes on our society’s “competition bias” and devaluing of “care.” 

    ·         We will focus on wisdom from each author that is particularly relevant for people making professional transitions after forty.

    ·         We will take time to reflect on areas of our own lives where we might put the insights of Sandberg and Slaughter into play.
