2020 Conference

Think Globally, Act Locally

Dr. Narender Chadha has been a leader in Career Development in India for many years.  Originally trained as a psychologist, he spent many years developing assessments of employee skills for private corporations.  This led to a focus on career development and he founded the Indian Career Development Association and held the first conference in 2010.  Since then, he has been active in APCDA and is a Past President.

India is blessed and challenged by the Youth Dividend.  The average age in India declined to 29 in 2020.  With millions of new job-seekers graduating each year, India needs scalable solutions for helping youth find careers and enter the labor market. Many new career planning tools and training programs are being developed in India, and Dr. Chadha has lent his considerable skills to assist Mindler, one of the leaders in the field.
