Career/Employment Services with Immigrants and Refugees: Research and Innovations from Canada
by William Borgen and Roberta Neault

Recorded March 11, 2020

In an increasingly interconnected global economy, it is essential for career development practitioners to understand how to effectively serve their immigrant and refugee clients. A one-size-fits-all approach to career and employment services is not what is needed. Learn from three presenters about how they integrated research with practice to inform and customize programming for immigrants and refugees in Canada. Information about a new program that uses career development services as part of an integrated settlement/counseling domestic violence program for immigrant and refugee women will also be presented.

Dr. William Borgen has conducted research and has developed programs regarding life transitions and career development for several years. His work has been translated and adapted for use in Bhutan, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, and Sweden. In 2005, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Umea in Sweden for his leadership in the development of counselor education in Sweden.  In 2011, he received the Stu Conger Award for leadership in career development in Canada. Dr. Borgen was a member of the Board of Directors of the IAEVG from 2011 to 2019. He was elected President of the International Association for Counselling in May of 2019.

Dr. Roberta Neault, President of Life Strategies Ltd., Project Director for the Canadian Career Development Foundation, and Adjunct Professor at the University of British Columbia, is an award-winning career development thought leader, counselor, counselor-educator, and invited speaker in Canada and internationally. She received APCDA’s Outstanding Educator of Career Professionals award. Roberta speaks and writes extensively on topics related to individual and organizational career challenges within a rapidly changing global economy, with a focus on engagement, wellbeing, sustainability, and international/global careers.
