Thank you for collaborating with one another and giving grace and support throughout this journey. Your CCDA Board stands firm in our commitment to serve those who have an interest in career and workforce development issues in Colorado. In our discussions we have focused on sharing tools and resources available in the state and providing as many professional development opportunities to ALL in our industry.

    Using the Who You Are Matters! VIRTUAL Program to Design Futures presented by Rich Feller

    Virtual presentation Friday 5/7/2021 from 1pm-2:30pm

    Please register, it is free to attend.

    Clients want to design futures, not fall into them. “Future-ready” learners is the new accountability. CCDA 2019 introduced the Who You Are Matters board game to 30 tables of 5 as gamification and narrative assessment went to scale, Covid stopped that!

    The virtual edition goes further. Using small breakout rooms to create deeper listening, Who You Are Matters-virtual is called “magical” by Danielle Kershaw, Simon Fraser University.

    “The need is undeniable, the market needs this, and we need this,” says Drew McDowell, a Vermont coach.

    “We’re still talking about how fun it was and how much we learned about each other. We’re working on plans to expand the program throughout our campus of 27,000 students” says VP Marianna Savoca, Stony Brook University.

    Personally, clarify what you want more of, identify “what’s next” possibilities, experience giving and receiving feedback, and support others to be their best...that’s our PROMISE!

    As Career Development Leaders, with career development needs up and resources flat at best,

            Help faculty integrate virtual career outcomes in classes 

            Embed the program into curriculum 

            Increase student engagement behaviors 

            Create Clarification Statements, use the dashboard to organize session data, use Full Platform for self-directed storytelling, Intentional Exploration Workshop and more
