Navigating your career options and seeking employment are 2 important components of your experience as a UBC student and future alumnus. If you are part of a historically marginalized group, you may benefit from learning about specific career navigation challenges or concerns that could arise for you. 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, including invisible disabilities, such as neurodivergence, chronic illness and mental illness
- Members of LGBTQ+ communities, including queer, transgender, non-binary, and gender-variant individuals
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.
