“Promoting Equity through Guidance: Reflection, Action, and Impact”

The conference theme, “Promoting equity through Guidance: reflection, action, impact,” represents one of the main concerns of the IAEVG and a great challenge for the years to come.

It is jointly organized by the Departments MIDE II-OEDIP (Educational Guidance, Assessment and Psychopedagogy) and MIDE I (Research Methods and Assessment in Education), as well as academics from other departments of the Faculty of Education, and some of UNED’s Careers Service staff, in collaboration with the Spanish Association of Guidance and Psychopedagogy (AEOP), the Spanish Confederation of Guidance Practitioners (COPOE), the Mexican Journal of Educational Guidance (REMO) Educaweb, the Inter-University Guidance Professors Network (RIPO) and Euroguidance Network.

The meeting will take place during three and a half days and will offer key note addresses and expert panels, several international symposia, poster presentations and workshops. It is intended to contribute to the debate on the role of guidance as a key element in promoting equity in different areas, contexts and settings. Guidance should be supported by institutions, governments, and the private sector, so that everyone can benefit from a fundamental right throughout their life. In a world in which social inequalities, injustice, environmental degradation and the digital gap are increasingly growing, it is necessary to promote socially just and culturally sensitive practices, which do not serve the interests of the market but rather promote personal, academic and career development of individuals, contributing to the ideal of creating more just, cohesive and sustainable societies.

This international conference, in line with the previous ones, shows the vitality, dynamism and initiative that prevail in IAEVG. In addition to the scientific dimension, it will allow you to network and share experiences with colleagues from around the world.
