4 reports that caught our eye the week of Jan. 31, 2021

CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:

Career Guidance for Adults in a Changing World of Work (OECD)

Compared to career guidance services for youth, services for adults receive relatively little policy attention, and little is known of how often existing services are used. This report scopes out initiatives in the area of career guidance for adults in OECD countries, drawing lessons on how to strengthen adult career guidance systems in terms of coverage and inclusiveness, provision and service delivery, quality and impact, and governance and funding.

2021 Career Industry Trends (Career Thought Leaders)

This paper is based off of findings from Career Jam, a virtual gathering of career professionals from the Australia, Canada, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. Leaders brainstormed best practices, innovations, trends, new programs and new processes.

Systemic inequalities for LGBTQ professionals in STEM (ScienceAdvances)

This report found – controlling for variation by demographic, discipline and job factors – that LGBTQ STEM professionals were more likely to experience career limitations, harassment and professional devaluation than their non-LGBTQ peers. They also reported more frequent health difficulties and were more likely to intend to leave STEM.

What Are Canadian Post-Secondary Institutions Saying and Doing? Social and Emotional Skills (The Conference Board of Canada)

Canadian post-secondary institutions are not prioritizing social and emotional skills acquisition for students, despite their growing importance to employers, this report states. More emphasis must be placed on ensuring students develop these skills.
