    About the Keynote


    Inclusive and Equitable Practices & Resources for Today's Career Development Professional by Dr. Marian Higgins, Be Inspired Counseling & Consulting and University of Georgia  


    The world of career development is constantly changing and evolving leaving career development professionals with the question: How can we keep up?  With the flow of information around technology, policy, employment trends, and coaching/counseling techniques, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. This year’s conference will provide opportunities for attendees to learn and share proven strategies for performing effectively while embracing the ever-changing field of career development. Breakout sessions will focus on a variety of topics including but not limited to, staying abreast of technological innovations, maintaining awareness of overall trends in the world-of-work and career coaching, and working with specialized populations (non-US citizens, individuals looking to return to the workforce after an absence, mental health concerns, etc.). Attendees will come away with new ideas and effective strategies for thriving as a career development professional.
