ChatCDP: Mapping Engagement Challenges in the Career Development Sector

So far, ChatCDP conversations have included rich discussion and learning about national certification, AI, best practices, self-disclosure, and more! All topics have emerged from attendees simply coming together to discuss whatever is on their minds.

Now we are thrilled to announce themed ChatCDP sessions! These are conversations on a specific topic, led by a guest host, with the same principles around conversation and engagement between CDPs.

We are very excited to announce our second themed ChatCDP Session:

Mapping Engagement Challenges in the Career Development Sector: Cultivating Collective Insight and Individual Action

Lead by Tam Nguyen

Session Description

Join us for an interactive 1.5-hour ChatCDP session where we’ll delve into the intricate challenge of engagement within the career development sector. Using systems mapping techniques, we’ll collaboratively explore the complexity of this issue from a systemic perspective, uncovering underlying factors and interconnections. Through guided discussions, career professionals will gain insights into their current practices and identify opportunities to positively contribute to enhancing engagement with clients, the public, and employers. Don’t miss this opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from fellow practitioners, and collectively work towards building a more engaged and connected career development community.

Together, we’ll pave the way for a dynamic and connected Canadian CDP Community where everyone has a voice . . . one chat at a time!

Help us cultivate a community we all enjoy by reviewing and following the Code of Conduct.  

Our Purpose  

Thank you for being a part of the online CDPC social learning community. To ensure that all members have the best possible experience, we have a few ground rules that we ask everyone to adhere to. This code of conduct applies equally to every person in the community and is intended to foster an online space that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming to all. 

Community Rules 

Be welcoming 

We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. We aim to create and facilitate a community that promotes excellence and innovation in career and workforce development. Please extend respect to all members; we all come from different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and there is no such thing as a stupid question. 

Be respectful 

We won’t all agree all the time, but when we disagree don’t let those disagreements turn into personal attacks. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened will not be a productive one. Instead, when having discussions in the online community, create productive conversations around the content being presented, not the person behind the content. Any post that is determined to be “hate speech” towards any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation.  

Hate Speech could include and is not limited to:  

  • Violent threats or language directed against another person 
  • Discriminatory jokes, language, or materials 
  • Defamatory or abusive language or materials 
  • Profane or illegal materials 
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior 

A good rule of thumb is to never post anything that you wouldn’t be comfortable with the world seeing or that you wouldn’t want anyone knowing came from you. We ask that you keep in mind the focus of this community, which is building excellence and innovation in career and workforce development for all individuals.  

Be considerate of the purpose of the community 

This community will be focused on building excellence and discussing innovation in the career and workforce development field. The goal of this community is to communicate goals, challenges, constructive feedback, and questions in relation to career and workforce development. The community should be a place for continued learning and development as well as a place to discuss the future of our field (solicitation without written consent by the Project or Advisory team, is strictly prohibited). Any post that is determined to be soliciting any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation. 

Post your discussions or documents in the most appropriate group or topic 

Make reasonable efforts to ensure that posts and materials are allocated to the appropriate group or topic. This will prevent cluttering the community and make it easier for everyone to find the information that they are seeking. Individuals who do this repeatedly will be contacted by one of the group admins and asked to follow these guidelines.  

Privacy and Release of Information  

CDPC-CEDC will not release your information to any third-party agencies.  

Group Admins 

There are four group admins who are available to you. Below are their names and their spoken language. 

Heather Powell | Anglophone 

Gabrielle St-Cyr | Francophone/Anglophone 

Florence Desrochers | Francophone/Anglophone

Muriel Andoblé-Yao | Francophone

Thank you and welcome to the CDPC Community!
