Winter 2021 issue of Careering focuses on social justice
This digital-only issue of Careering, on the theme of Social Justice, highlights the importance of understanding the context in which people pursue education and work – or are prevented from doing so to their full potential. It also reminds us that career development can be a powerful tool to challenge inequities and to advance the public good.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on the longstanding inequities affecting individuals’ career development options and outcomes. While high-profile activism and a precarious employment landscape raised public consciousness of these challenges in 2020, these issues – and the work being done to challenge them – are certainly not new.
