STOP Asking About Passion: Increase Equity Through Aptitude, Purpose and Life Design Concepts
Monday, January 13th 2020
Focusing on "passion" and "what do you like to do" dominates advising and career practice. New data shows how this misguides students, reinforces exposure bias by gender, race and geography. What if learners identified their competitive advantages that always show up, clarified their purpose, and gained voice through life design? This is changing academic and career advising on a growing number of campuses. Learn how CSU can use www.youscience.com, purpose and life design tools free. Explore how campuses are building employer partnerships to fill the talent pipeline using www.YouScience.com while helping students gain voice and self-advocate.
Goals and Target Audience:
1) Review data and the www.youscience.com performance based aptitude platform to evaluate its use on campus;
2) Learn how to access it "free" to use with any CSU student or employer partnership;
3) Complete and learn to use a "purpose" finding tool with students tomorrow;
4) Key "life design" concepts
Each academic and career advisor, and staff involved with course selection, retention, employer partnerships, and career development is welcome.
