Theme: International
Institution: University of Calgary

This session will describe an innovative workshop done in partnership between the University of Calgary’s Career Services and the SU Wellness Centre and developed for international students, “Culture, Identity and Navigating Career Choices”, which facilitated students’ understanding of how their cultural identity can influence how they navigate career choices. We will share student outcomes from our offerings of this session, as well as best practices for helping international students navigate their career choices. Student services staff will also have the opportunity to engage with the workshop information and identify the influence that their own cultural identity has on their perspectives on career development.
