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.

Identity Crisis: Finding Power in Defining Yourself

In today's world, there is very little if any time devoted to figuring out one of life's most important and most ignored questions: Who am I?  The power of this question is not immediately apparent, as it seems like a pretty straightforward answer.  But is it really?  How you choose to identify yourself can distinguish you as a leader, can influence your interactions with coworkers, family, and friends, can contribute to stress both positively or negatively, and can change the landscape of your job search and your life. And that's all just the beginning.  As part of this session, attendees will:
  • Learn the distinction between internal and external validation
  • Begin to answer the  questions: "Who am I?" and "Who do I want to be?"
  • Be empowered to redefine the way others see and interact with you
  • Combat impostor syndrome by identifying your truest self
  • Overcome or avoid the dreaded mid-life crisis
