The talent pool to fill and create work opportunities is vast and yet many suffer from ills in society, which can defer, stifle, or discourage one from swimming to achieve goals. Clients and students may seek a career practitioner to solve a particular circumstance and not realize the significance of addressing an adverse work experience. Career counseling, coaching, and development are becoming more sought after from diverse populations in a broad range of socioeconomic identities. It is imperative for career practitioners to recognize and address diversity, equity, and inclusion concerns and issues when providing services. Providing culturally competent and appropriate services will allow practitioners to build an effective alliance, assess adverse work experiences, and cultivate useful strategy for clients and students.
