The Fall Event will explore how the foundation of career development as a profession built itself on social justice principles and practices.
As career educators, we are called upon to embed these practices into our work that more equitably includes and supports marginalized students and clients. The late John Lewis proclaimed, “it is time to get into good, necessary trouble.” Led by scholar-practitioners, Lisa Higashi and Michael J. Stebleton, this interactive workshop will focus on exploring our historical roots and guiding frameworks related to social justice causes. Furthermore, we will collectively share practices, examples, and strategies that will advance our social justice work.
Lisa Higashi, M.Ed., is Associate Director, Careers and Student
Development as well as a sessional instructor in Management
and Organization Studies in the Beedie School of Business
at Simon Fraser University, Canada.
Michael J. Stebleton, PhD, is Associate Professor and Coordinator
of Graduate Programs of Higher Education at the University of
Minnesota-Twin Cities, USA. His research and teaching
interests focus on college student development.
