Navigating your career options and seeking employment are two important components of your experience as a UBC student and future alumnus. If you are part of a historically marginalized group, you may want to know about specific career navigation resources. Historically marginalized groups are systemically disadvantaged based on their identities and confront barriers to equal access to employment.
These groups include, but are not limited to:
- Indigenous peoples
- People of colour
- People with disabilities
- Members of LGBTQ+ communities, including queer, transgender, non-binary, and gender-variant individuals
If you are a member of one or more of these groups, UBC has resources to support you.
You may belong to more than one marginalized group. As you navigate these resources consider your unique circumstances and reach out to a coach, advisor, mentor or peer to develop strategies that take your intersecting identities and experiences into consideration.
