Event Detail


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. 

Our Presenters: 

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.
