Career development is integral to strong educational and labour market systems and to individuals’ well-being. Yet, globally, the career development sector faces common challenges: limiting policies impeding our work, unstable and inadequate funding, and minimal public awareness. Our panel of rock star experts will share how they have influenced change in policy, systems and public arenas. Come join the conversation!

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn about concrete actions to influence upstream macro-level change
  • Explore strategies used by researchers, government officials and CDPs
  • Engage in dialogue on how we can create change
