This episode, hosted by NCDA President Dr. Lakeisha Mathews, features a conversation with Dr. Eboni Zamani-Gallaher, Associate Dean for Equity, Justice, and Strategic Partnerships at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education. They address the critical importance of representation across higher education, including career centers, and the connection of career development and social justice work. The discussion includes the need for early intervention, intentional outreach, and equitable practices in which all students have an opportunity to succeed in their chosen career. Drs. Mathews and Zamani-Gallaher issue a call to action for career practitioners to acknowledge that career development needs are not the same for everyone and provide tools and resources to ignite learning and create better futures for all.
