Welcome to the Washington Career Development Association, we are glad you are here! We have been busy for years broadening our membership and recognize the imperative to move equity to the forefront of our mission and work.

The COVID-19 Pandemic, Race and Justice reckoning have punctuated those efforts and charged our resolve to respond and address.
