As Career Development Practitioners it is our responsibility to practice ethically – to uphold the Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners Code of Ethics and to adhere to the Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners. Heightened awareness related to systemic racism and racial inequality in the recent weeks has reinforced and added urgency to this responsibility.
Through consciousness, education, and advocacy we can challenge social justice issues, racism, and discrimination that impacts our Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) members and broader career development community, and the clients and communities we serve. The experiences of our members are important to us. As your professional association we are here to support you. We are committed to listening and learning so we can be better and do better for you.
We have started to compile a list of accessible resources, organizations, events, and actions that can enhance our knowledge and understanding, provide opportunities for listening, learning, and involvement, and support us to take action. Please help us build an Alberta specific database for our members and broader career development community, and the clients and communities we serve.
