Career visioning and goal setting is one of the most important steps when searching for a job or changing careers. Surprisingly, it’s the step many people skip. Understanding your life’s vision and goals sets your intentions, drives your actions and brings you closer to success. Barbara Brooks with SecondActWomen opens the event with her signature Career Assessment where you’ll gain insight into where you are today and where you’re headed – or want to head at 40+. It’s designed specifically for the professional woman over 40 to use as a guidepost to set your goals to.
Age is your superpower…on the job and in real life. But, even our superpowers get put to the test. We know that career pursuits at 40 & 50+ can be challenging, exhausting and frustrating, especially when workplace realities like ageism work against us. But there are things you can do to push back on ageist beliefs, market your experience, build intergenerational bridges, and create the career you want.
Save $20 on your ticket to CareerCon and walk away feeling inspired and ready for more. Watch our 2-minute video for a little pick-me-up vibe and reminder you’re unstoppable.
As professional women 40 & 50+, we know gendered ageism in the workplace is real. But that truth doesn’t have to be your reality. Now is not the time to sit on the career sidelines and let others dictate your future. It’s YOUR time to engage, stay informed, level up your skills and remind corporate America that the acquired skills, wisdom, connections, and experience that come with age are highly-valuable professional commodities.

“I’ve got two big words to describe the SAW Career Boot Camp – LIFE CHANGER! This group, led by Barbara and Lupe – helped me to uncover confidence that had become buried in self-doubt during the pandemic. (During which I turned 50!)
Since attending the Career Camp Workshop in 2021, my career has skyrocketed! During the full-day workshop, I was introduced to passionate leaders from their vast community of professionals, as well as great new friends. Joy, success & confidence have returned in abundance.”
“Making the commitment to join Second Act Women and attend Career Camp to upskill my job-hunting efforts was a valuable investment. The sessions empowered me to focus my time, multiply my efforts, and quickly upskill in today’s technology-driven career search market. Within 60 days I had multiple written offers, I was invited to present to a master’s-level class on my unconventional job search tactics, and I ultimately accepted an offer with a 40% salary increase and generous signing bonus.”
“I am happy that I attended the Career Camp. The session topics were relevant, informative and encouraging.
Also, to be surrounded by amazing women and feel their strength was amazing. Not only was it empowering, the new sisterhood you come away with is indescribable.”
