Indigenous peoples represent an emerging clientele in the career development field, yet their needs for socio-professional integration remain quite unknown. Their unique reality requires a multidimensional approach that takes into account their cultural, social and economic specificities. Given the absence of specific reference guides or tools to foster the integration and ongoing employment of Inuit peoples, AXTRA (formerly known as RQuODE) committed to field-based research documenting interventions with Inuit clients in northern communities and urban contexts. This led to the creation of a CERIC-funded reference guide tailored to support career development practitioners in their work with Inuit and, with certain adaptations, to other marginalized clientele.
This webinar will present some of the key strategies presented in the guide and demonstrate its relevance with concrete examples.
