    The pandemic contributed to new workplace experiences for many employees and business leaders across the country. The current climate has many companies abandoning the outdated in-person meeting model, which is outdated and unsustainable, and replacing it with a new model that lends itself to collaboration, digitalization, and a more relevant workforce. Join this session to investigate current challenges in the workplace post-pandemic, specifically related to staffing shortages, global effect, and employee mental health. In addition, presenters will discuss how gathering input from employees helped in the restructuring of recruiting strategies and best practices related to creating and nurturing inclusive high-performance teams and team environments in the workplace.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Receive updated and relevant information on how the pandemic has impacted team environments and the future of work trends;
    • Uncover hidden biases that have been created as a result of new work options; and
    • Identify the means to evaluate performance prepandemic, and how those same performance measures were implemented postpandemic.

  • Making Career Readiness the Core of a Liberal Arts Undergraduate Curriculum

    Basic, intermediate, and advanced-level career services professionals
    $375 (member); $425 (nonmember)

    REGISTER NOW

    At the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, the Career Readiness Initiative in the College of Liberal Arts is making career readiness core to the college’s mission. Conceptualizing readiness as the acquisition of Core Career Competencies has fundamentally changed undergraduate education at a liberal arts institution. This model includes career management as our tenth competency, which is the mission of our Career Services Office. 

    Conceived seven years ago, it rests on the four pillars from the National Competency Symposium framework: “conceptualization and planning,” “coalition building,” “resources,” and “assessment.” Using our initiative as a case study, we share how we navigated leading institutional change. We will identify key stakeholders and moments crucial for success both for faculty and for the transformation of our career services delivery model. Breakout sessions and exercises will allow participants to translate these lessons to actionable next steps for their initiatives.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Develop a business case for senior leadership with an outcomes and impact focus;
    • Align strategic goals and institutional vision to build institution-wide alliances supporting liberal arts and career readiness;
    • Identify key stakeholders, including faculty, and understand their motivations and constraints to be engaged in career readiness;
    • Reimagine the role of career services as playing an essential part of the curriculum; and
    • Review and evaluate opportunities to best serve students in a reciprocal and mutually reinforcing model, with students at its core.

    Presenters

    • Judy Anderson, Career Readiness Coordinator, College of Liberal Arts, University of Minnesota – Twin Cities
    • Maggie Heier, Director, Career Services, College of Liberal Arts, University of Minnesota
