Overview: 

This webinar series will address the disparities racialized folks experience in their careers including those who identify as Black, Indigenous and as people of colour. As a career practitioner it is vital to understand the systems that serve to harm or hinder the career trajectories of those who are racialized. The research is clear, the systems in place can negatively impact their careers as they face many barriers that alter their recruitment, hiring, advancement and retention in the workforce. Although there has been some progress in businesses recognizing the need to have a diverse, inclusive and equitable workforce, more work needs to be completed to dismantle the systems that continue to contribute towards promoting and harming those who are racialized.  

Why Career Practitioners Should Attend: 

Working in a system that operates to oppress individuals who are from a racialized group should be a concern for everyone but especially for someone who empowers others in their education and career trajectories. The systems in place were created to elevate some groups while historically oppressing others. If you want to apply practical strategies to be equitable and inclusive when working with your racialized clients, the time is now. Learn what it takes to be an effective ally and an agent for change.
