The foundation of career development built itself on social justice principles and practices. As career educators, we need to embed these practices into our work to more equitably include and support marginalized individuals. John Lewis proclaimed, "It is time to get into good, necessary trouble." This interactive workshop will focus on exploring historical roots and strategies to promote social justice.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Gain strategies to incorporate social justice practices into current work 
  • Better understand the historical roots of the career development profession
  • Generate concrete ideas around supporting and advocating for marginalized groups
