Advocating UN International Careers & Livelihood Day and UN Celebration of International Days
"International days are occasions to educate the general public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity."
UN has designated various international days /week for the following causes:
Considering the significant impact career development contributes towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and inclusive communities globally, Ms. Tracey Champbell, Dr. Roberta Borgen (Neault) and Mr. Raza Abbas collectively came up with an idea to work on advocating and proposing a UN International Careers & Livelihood Day as a global collective initiative to promote greater public good.
We are a global group of committed volunteers that have formed a Community of Practice- a group of people who share a common concern, a set of problems, or an interest in a topic and who come together to fulfill both individual and group goals. Committed volunteers will frequently share and advocate UN International Days on the WNAR-APCDA blog on how career development and career guidance professionals can amplify impact and increase awareness of various careers to the society at large.
Raza via his youtube channel, initiated a global advocacy series of interviewing leading career influencers and career luminaries on the popular series of ‘Maximizing Career Guidance & Career Development’ So far 14 interviews have been released more are in the pipeline. Sharing few links from leading career influencers supporting the UN International Careers & Livelihood Day:
The interviews of season 1 are shared on Dr. Roberta’s Career Engagement blog:
