Cancel Culture, Call-Out Culture, Counsel Culture: Affirming Today's "Disruptors" as Future Leaders

Cancel culture has become a polarizing topic of debate. The rise of public backlash is often fueled by social media. Preserving cultural cachet delicately teeters on evoking one’s freedom to speak truth to power or merciless mob outcry. This interactive diversity & inclusion webinar will define cancel culture and address the disparate impact of cancel culture on diverse groups. As society grapples with establishing new ethical and social norms, asserting cancel culture as a social justice remedy may indeed dismiss and suppress the free exchange of ideas, thoughts, and speech needed to make meaningful change. As career professionals prepare students to transition to the world of work, best practices for student engagement in the new normal will be shared. Helping students to stand in their truth in the midst of the tumultuous wave of cancel culture, call-out culture, and counsel culture trends positions them to strike the balance needed to succeed in the workplace without relinquishing their identity and beliefs.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Build an awareness and understanding of cancel culture.
  2. Understand the difference between cancel culture and call-out culture.
  3. Identify the need for counsel culture and teachable moments in order to transform thinking.
  4. Empower students’ personal truth and identification in their growth as a professional.

Resilience in the Job Search

In a culture that thrives on instant gratification, how do we prepare students and prospective candidates for the COVID-19 reality that they may not get the job of their dreams upon graduation or they may not get a job right away? Instead, it may take them months to secure a position. At times, they will get rejected and be discouraged. When they land the job, they may even experience disappointment early on. These new, young professionals will face difficulties with their job search, but how will they respond? Will they bounce back or will they fall under the weight of their expectations and potential entitlement? The key to a successful job search is being properly prepared in resilience. Now more than ever, educating students and prospective candidates on resilience must become a priority not only to career development professionals but employers also. By sharing personal testimonies, research findings, and practical resilience strategies, workshop attendees will have a better understanding of what resilience is and how to implement techniques into their Career Centers and workplaces.
