Student Life Events at St. George

Balancing Job Searching, Work & Caregiving

Jan 24, 2023 02:00 PM to 03:30 PM

Registration Deadline: Jan 24, 2023 02:50 PM

Our multiple, intersectional identities are intrinsically tied to how we find and show up at work - so let's chat about it!

This event is an interactive dialogue co-hosted by Career Exploration & Education and the Family Care Office. 

Please note this event is HYBRID. You are welcome to join either online (via Zoom) or in-person (800 Bay Street).

Join us for a cup of coffee or tea, and a discussion to... 
  • Acknowledge and identify systemic barriers caregivers face when seeking and maintaining employment
  • Explore how to identify employers that support the priorities and needs of caregivers
  • Learn how to honor caregiving skills on your resume, and how and when to address resume gaps
  • Develop structures of support and identify resources that can support you in finding balance between job-seeking, working and caregiving

What should I expect in this session? 
  • Our sessions involve an interactive presentation and center dialogue and connection between and across our experiences and identities. We will also have the opportunity to collectively reimagine the world of work, as it relates to our identities, priorities and values. 
Is this session online or in-person? 
  • Both! You can join us over Zoom or in-person. 
  • If joining in-person, the workshop will occur at 800 Bay Street on the 5th Floor, in Workshop Room A.
    • Coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be provided for in-person attendees.
