Sustaining Career Development: Using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Dr. Candy Ho

Inspired by the United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a university career transition course introduced the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in its curriculum. A natural fit between career education and the UN SDGs was discovered as students pondered three big questions: 

What is the world that I want to live in? 

What do I see are the global problems or opportunities that need our attention? 

What are my talents and experiences that may help address these problems and, in turn, improve the condition of our world?

Similarly, these questions can be – and ought to be – considered when developing programs and honing practices. Incorporating the SDGs, our work can inspire clients to assess their professional aspirations and how these aspirations can be grounded on a broader goal(s) that promotes a sustainable future for our local and global communities. This, in turn, further amplifies the impact of our work by ultimately helping clients realize their mission and purpose.

Be Awakened – Global mindset, trends and issues


This webinar covers emerging strategies for innovative workforce programs. Pilot City’s presentation includes a dynamic, interactive panel discussion with student program alumni, teachers, industry representatives, and parents. Training a highly competitive entry-level workforce now requires career experiences in upper-middle and high school. Students prepared for relevant work experiences before college or vocational training understand the importance of work attitudes and needed skills. Today, more high school students are encouraged to show industry-related certificates in skills such as computer coding, Computer-Aided Design (CAD), User Interface Xperience (UIX), and all forms of social media.

Career professionals learn to shift from resumes to other platforms for the emerging workforce. PilotCity covers the best practices of industry projects, allowing high school students unique industry internships. Based on thousands of post-internship surveys, the benefits of workplace training and digital internships include teachers and employers using asynchronous interviews and informal applications.

Career professionals and counselors can relate the project-based learning (PBL) approach of internships and similarities to government work-based learning (WBL) programs designed for equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) goals. High school students get an edge for their future jobs and careers. Their testament to confidence-building experience shows the benefit of PilotCity strategies for all residents, companies, and communities.

Challenging Ageism: Global Perspectives on Community and Workforce

By Dr. Jennifer Luke
Careers Educator and Researcher at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ)

Recorded on September 22, 2021

The world’s population is becoming older, due to lower birth rates and advancing medical and health wellness across many nations. By 2050, the world’s population of people over the age of 60 will double. How should society, mindsets, and worldviews change so that career practitioners, employers, and communities better adjust services, policies, technology, and support for their older community members and workers? Understanding the worldviews, challenges, assumptions, mindsets, and cultural differences towards elders is vital.

Retaining knowledge within the workforce is essential and so it is important to highlight to employers how older workers can be valuable trainers and mentors. Older community members and those within the workforce are not burdens, they are valuable contributors with experience and knowledge to give.

This webinar will cover examples of how various countries deliver on age-friendly initiatives. Case studies, global statistics and trend data relating to ageism will also be discussed. Participants will gain the understanding of the individual motivations and needs of an older worker.
