Shifting demographics within nations and the growing international labour market underscore the importance of preparing career practitioners with multicultural career counselling competencies. However, career practitioners need to move beyond an appreciation of cultural diversity to incorporating perspectives on social justice into their roles and methods of intervention. The discussion examines ways of strengthening social action and advocacy roles in multicultural career counselling. Recommendations are given for expanding social justice competencies in international standards for career development practitioners.
