The Great Resignation – What Are You
Resigning From…And To?

It’s been called the Great Resignation – and for the more seasoned worker, the Great Retirement. Goldman Sachs estimated last fall that more than half of those who had left the workforce during the COVID era were over 55. Forbes referred to this exodus as the ’Silver Tsunami’ as Baby Boomers and Generation Xers were laid off; or they left their jobs to enjoy life experiences without the stress of a demanding job.

Does the Great Resignation represent a challenge or an opportunity for 40+ members? During this session, you will identify opportunities to benefit from the Great Resignation.


    Marva Goldsmith has been a member of the Perennial Workforce since 2001. At the age of 42, she left the Fortune 500 utility company where she had worked since the age of 17, moved to Washington DC and reinvented her professional life to better align with her passion. This electrical engineer became an image and brand consultant! During the next 16 years, Marva worked with CEOs, nonprofits, government agencies, corporations, incarcerated youth and a host of individuals to help define and implement their intentional image/brand. In 2016, an opportunity to form a new company with a business partner was presented. As CEO of Consult DSA, a Woman-Owned Small Business, she has come full circle, combining logic with creativity to provide management consulting services and organizational effectiveness solutions to a variety of companies and governmental agencies.

    An electrical engineer from Michigan State University, Marva obtained a Master in Public Administration from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government at the age of 42. She is a Leadership Coach from the ICF-accredited Georgetown University.
