DECENT WORK ON A CHANGING PLANET: PRACTICAL STRATEGIES FOR DEVELOPING A MORE EQUITABLE WORLD FOR OUR CLIENTS
This is the second webinar in the series!
Career development professionals traditionally provide career management and self-exploration skills, helping the client better adapt to the social structures around them. There is also an acknowledgement of equity/diversity/inclusion, but rarely do we discuss how to empower client-centered change in employers.
In the webinar series, we will discuss the intersections between decent work and climate/sustainability, and explore how these issues disproportionately impact vulnerable groups, including refugees, Indigenous communities and students – often the most affected by the rapidly changing dynamics of our world. This practical two-part webinar series will go through concrete strategies to empower clients through consciousness raising, negotiation skills and awareness of labour law, while fostering a collaboration between employers and employees.
Cross-cultural approaches will be highlighted along with real-life case examples of how CDPs can effectively support their clients to pursue decent work and improve the quality of their lives. This will involve the application of various social justice principles including those from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, in the work of career development professionals.
By the end of the webinar series, participants will feel better equipped and will leave with a list of resources, strategies and techniques to create positive impacts in your clients’ lives amidst a changing planet.
