Careers Beyond 40: Adapting To The Job Market With Complete Confidence 

Join Us for this FREE event March 19th, 2024
1:00pm – 1:30pm EDT 
Kelly Kugler, Chez Jennings and Bedilia Ramirez are speaking at the Empower Her: Advancing Women in the Workplace and Beyond Diversity Summit, hosted by Power To Fly.
This is a conversation we have had with each other and with the women we work with continuously. As we enter new eras in our lives our needs change as do our sense of where we belong. We have embraced those changes personally, professionally and we welcome this opportunity to include more of you in this conversation. We find confidence, support and inspiration in each other as we should.
As we progress in our careers, reaching the age of 40 can bring about a sense of uncertainty when it comes to navigating the job market, especially if we want to make a change. It’s essential to adapt with confidence to ensure continued success and to support one another in making it happen. Our network is a crucial aspect of navigating the job market beyond 40. Any kind of relationship has the power to open doors to new opportunities, boost our confidence, show us viable career paths to consider, and offer insightful advice from a woman’s perspective. When seeking new career opportunities, transitioning, or pivoting, it is essential to have confidence in your decisions, resilience, assertiveness, abilities, and expertise. With confidence, we can adapt and navigate the job market successfully and continue to thrive in our careers.
As we say at Allora Collective, big change requires big risk, but you don’t have to do it alone.

    Kelly, Chez and Bedilia provided a very relevant workshop. They were all very approachable and knowledgeable. It’s unfortunate that ageism exists and that it makes it more difficult to find roles but we were provided great insights and recommendations.
