CCDA 2019 Fall Conference:

Cultivating Inclusive Practices in Career Development

Building from the foundation laid at the Fall 2018 CCDA conference on diversity, this conference will support career development practitioners from all work contexts to dive deeper into the normative logics that undergird our policies, practices, events, and processes. Together, we will inquire, interrogate, and ultimately intentionally deviate from the norm in order to nuance and expand our commitments and practices related to diversity, inclusion, and equity in career development.

Featuring Key Note Speakers

Kathryn Joan Leslie and Sean C. Kenney of Project Deviate

Project Deviate’s Kathryn Joan Leslie and Sean C. Kenney will facilitate an interactive and experiential session that engages two main questions: what counts as normal in our practices? And who or what might that exclude?  Audience members will be challenged to think deeply about diversity and inclusion by considering hidden or invisible bias through the lens of intersectionality.

Project Deviate LLC is an education, training, and consulting firm that supports organizations in engaging diversity, equity, and inclusion work. We partner with organizations in creating habits that build equitable workplaces, through getting curious about what counts as “normal” and exploring who or what that normal leaves out. We envision a world where organizations continuously open new horizons for thriving and belonging by intentionally deviating from the norm.

Afternoon presentations from CCDA members and Colorado's community of career professionals will build on the morning's theme of exploring and challenging normative practices in career development and the complexities surrounding promoting diversity, inclusion, and equity. There will be a total of four breakout sessions and, if selected, you wil be asked to facilitate the session twice in two, 30-45 minute blocks.

CCDA is interested in breakout facilitators that feature engaging and interactive sessions that promote active learning for professionals across our various constituencies. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Breaking down barriers to non-traditional career paths
  • Micro-messaging in career practices
  • Reframing career services for inquiry and inclusion
