Navigating 2040 and Beyond: The Futures of Careers & Career Development Roles

This is a webinar!

Overview of the Webinar:

In recent years, a confluence of global phenomena, including climate change and rapid technological advancements like artificial intelligence, and the 2020 pandemic has dramatically reshaped the world of work. This urgent reassessment of career options highlights the critical role of career development practitioners in navigating the evolving landscape, where traditional notions of work are swiftly being redefined. Understanding and responding to these transformative forces is crucial for practitioners to guide individuals through the challenges and opportunities of the rapidly changing nature of work.

The purpose of this free webinar is to share key findings from the Career Development in 2040 CERIC-funded research project which identifies how the career development sector, advocacy organizations and policymakers need to prepare for 2040 and beyond. This project employed a unique strategic foresight methodology, which started with a rigorous analysis of key trends shaping work and careers in 2040, and translated into a set of scenarios used to uncover how career development services may evolve, and what that means for the role of career developer, and key skills needed to thrive in these futures.

Why Career Practitioners Should Attend:

This session is uniquely designed for career practitioners to understand how future trends impacting work and careers will change the nature of their work, and what they should do to prepare. Participants will learn about 10 megatrends impacting career development, and what this could mean for career-related services and the roles of career development professionals (CDPs) in 2040. During the webinar, participants will have the chance to actively engage and share their reality, thoughts and reflections with our presenters. This session will also share insights into areas of focus in the near term, helping career developers in their ongoing learning and professional development to prepare for the range of futures they might expect.

Key Learning Takeaways:

  • Gain insight into the macro factors redefining the changing workplace and career paths
  • Understand how career development services may evolve in response to these major changes
  • Examine the potential impacts of these changes on the future responsibilities and role of career developers
  • Discuss the skills and competencies CDPs may need by 2040 as a result

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
