Intersectional Approach to Supporting Career Development Certificate Program

Secure your spot now: Limited availability starting on March 4, 2024!

An intersectional approach to career support involves developing an awareness of our complex and personal experiences with power, privilege and oppression to better understand their influence and impact on service delivery, workforce trends and barriers. Given that 14.3% of Canadians over 15 with disabilities belong to visible minority groups, an intersectional approach is vital for employment professionals to effectively support their job search.

Why you shouldn’t miss this opportunity?

This 6-week, online certificate program is grounded in research, offering asynchronous learning modules and weekly webinars facilitated by a knowledgeable instructor for practical, community-based learning.

You will explore the impacts of intersectionality for individuals who are Black, Indigenous and Persons of Colour experiencing disability (BIPOC-D).

This program invites you to:

  • Reflect on your own privilege and biases to explore how they impact the services you provide to Racialized, Indigenous and People of Colour who experience disability.
  • Enhance your awareness and understanding of the challenges faced by BIPOC-D jobseekers, and acquire actionable strategies to actively contribute to positive change in lives.
  • Address systemic oppression by applying strategies in your daily work practice.
