MetadataShow full item record
Through attending this workshop, participants will gain knowledge about the concept of social justice, how this concept is connected to cultural diversity and systemic influences on career development, and how career interventions can be infused with social justice principles and practices. This presentation will discuss the connections between cultural diversity, social justice, and effective career counselling practices. Participants will explore their views of social justice and consider ways that they can overcome barriers and expand career counselling roles through infusing social justice principles and practices. Examples from research with career counsellors in Canada and Australia will be used to highlight common barriers to implementing social justice interventions. Examples will also highlight best of practices and ways of connecting social justice to career counselling roles and interventions. The increasing emphasis on socio-cultural and political influences on career makes this topic relevant for career counselors in all settings.
