I am so disappointed about this being postponed.
I had visions of her workshop kick starting a revolution in career development in WA.
THIS is what I had written to let you know about her….. I guess the revolution will continue to move at glacial speed!!
As the power of career guidance races at glacial speed into the consciousness of school leavers, the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA) is working to put a spotlight on the value of career guidance by bringing Dr Deirdre Hughes to Australia.
She is one of the growing band of social justice warriors who is fighting to break down barriers to career opportunities.
They are shifting the focus FROM the individual who needs to improve their interview skills, be more resilient and entrepreneurial TO building collaborative transitional frameworks that support people to transition to roles where they can engage their full potential.
The issues she talks about are similar to ours. She was involved with developing a commitment to providing a career pathway for every young Londoner. That commitment is outlined in the London Ambitions Report which you can check out HERE.
I got in touch with her through LinkedIn and asked how we can lift the profile and resources of career development in Western Australia. She sent me a link to work she has just had published which Champions Careers in Derby in the UK.
It provides a vision and strategy that includes mapping the local Derby careers ecosystem. It is a strategy that we could use as a template in WA.
