Symposium Theme - Social Justice
“New Zealanders have consistently rated inequality as the single biggest issue facing the country, since 2014.” www.inequality.org.nz
Social justice is a term used to represent the fair and just distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society, and has strong historical roots in vocational psychology. Today we continue to see how social and political factors influence the aspirations, education, and employment opportunities for individuals and communities. At this year’s CDANZ National Symposium we will explore:
1) How can effective career development services reduce inequality and contribute to a more just society?
2) How do we ensure our career practice reflects the varied needs of clients from diverse backgrounds?
3) How can we partner government to achieve our CDANZ vision of “Excellence in career development - for all New Zealanders.”
