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 Operations Council of 40Plus of Greater Washington is responsible for the day-to-day management of 40Plus. The primary functions -- training, membership, marketing, development, finance, information technology, and operations -- are provided by the members of the Council, with help from a large number active volunteers. The Operations Council meets weekly on Mondays or Thursdays, in the early afternoon. All members are very welcome to attend and strongly encouraged to get involved in projects undertaken by the council.
Remember: 40Plus is an ALL VOLUNTEER organization. Volunteering with us can help members (and others) remain actively engaged in the workplace while undertaking a career transition or job search. It may also help to fill a potential gap in a resume for those who become substantially involved. (Besides, it feels good and we try to have fun.)
