Career Development in Uncertain Times

Our 2020 Virtual Conference

Each year, the WCDA brings together career development professionals throughout the state of Washington for our annual Professional Development Institute. This year, due to public health guidance banning large gatherings due to Covid-19, the PDI planning committee asked the question: "how can we turn this challenge into an opportunity?"


The mission of the Washington Career Development Association is to cultivate career knowledge and encourage innovation through community and professional education.
