Summit 21

CICA Summit 2021

CICA Summit 21 was structured around the four themes of Support, Standards, Scalability and Sustainability.

CICA Summit 21 was run virtually, over four sessions. Stimulated by presentations from respected international career development experts, Dr Deirdre Hughes OBE, DMH & Associates (UK) and Sareena Hopkins, Canadian Career Development Foundation, facilitated catalyst discussions comprising panels of key government and industry stakeholders along with professional career practitioners, discussed and unpacked the presentations, focusing on the Australian context.

These discussions informed two smaller working sessions of representative delegates who worked with this information and their broad range of experience to create a wealth of ideas for the future direction of career development in Australia.
