I've just returned from Ottawa after an inspiring two days of meetings with career development practitioners and experts from across Canada. ASPECT, along with BC Career Development Association (Lubica Keighery, Executive Director in photo at right) and 33 other organizations, have been asked to be a part of a Supporting Canadians to Navigate Learning and Work
National Stakeholder Committee (NSC) to help facilitate multiple stakeholder meetings within our regions. These consultations will have several different levels of engagement and will include a diverse compilation of expertise.
Funded by Employment and Social Development Canada, the Canadian Career Development Foundation and the Canadian Council for Career Development is at the start of a 3-year project to define the scope of Career Development as a profession and the attributes that determine excellence. I'm bound by secrecy (partly joking) to say much more until we have a communications directive in the new year. I'll keep you posted.
