Life Design for Navigating Change: 
Re-Imagining the Career Experience in a Post COVID-19 World

MCDA Fall Workshop 2020
Friday, November 13th, 2020
8:30am-12:30pm EST

4 CEUs

Dr. Farouk Dey

Vice Provost for Integrative Learning and Life Design
Johns Hopkins Universi

COVID-19 has been the impetus behind the rapid paradigm shifts we are  witnessing in education, career development, and the world of work. These shifts are changing how people design their lives and careers, how universities structure curricula and academic experience, and how organizations hire and retain talent.

Based on his research and extensive experience at Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, and the University of Florida, Dr. Farouk Dey shares future trends in higher education and the world of work, how people and organizations can leverage the current context to design new pathways, and inequities in life and career outcomes for under-represented minorities that are largely due to the transactional systems in higher education and talent acquisition.

In the new and evolving digital age, equity must be our ultimate vision and outcome, scale should become our main value proposition, data drives our decisions and resources, and the path to one’s life purpose must transcend conventional transactional approaches in order to be accessible to all regardless of background or social capital.
