    • Creating Developmentally Appropriate Early Career Programming for the Adolescent Brain 

    Adolescence is said to last well into one’s twenties, and that means in our work – with undergraduates, new alumni, and graduate students — we often work with students whose brains are still under construction. How can we use brain science to design services that meet students where they are in their development?

    This session is inspired by Sarah-Jayne Blakemore’s “The mysterious workings of the adolescent brain” TED Talk and will feature global students who will share what has influenced and informed their career decisions. Delegates will discuss how adolescent brain development impacts student decision making and how to create effective approaches to early career education/programming.

    • Cultivating Curiosity to Navigate the Unimaginable Future of Work

    The emergence of Big Data and AI. The need for sustainability. Growing demand for social justice. Political and economic volatility. A global pandemic. These domains have and continue to disrupt our routines, campus life, and workforce roles. What are the next big shifts and how will they affect the world of work? That is a trick question: no one truly knows! The only certainty is that change is inevitable. It is against this backdrop of uncertainty that this session emphasizes approaches to navigating the unimaginable future while also touching on topics of emerging career competencies for students and career services leaders.

    12:00 – 13:00  Lunch

    13:00 – 17:00 Afternoon session:

    • Integrating career development and employability across campus

    As career services around the globe increasingly look to ecosystem models to increase both the scale and depth of student preparation, great examples of career services integration on campuses are both emerging and becoming more established. This session will highlight specific examples in order to explore ways that career services can integrate more broadly and deeply with the academic curriculum, use technology and data systems to facilitate integration, and consider additional factors such as physical space that can enhance integration.
