Ethnic identity in adults has been shown to play a role in occupational choices; however, the development of this relationship in Canadian youth is still largely unexplored. In this study, we draw on longitudinal interviews to explore the relationship between the strength of youth ethnic identity and their occupational aspirations in an urban Canadian school district.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Measures of ethnic identity in research
  • Development of the relationship between ethnic identity and career aspirations
  • Exploring person fit models to encourage diversity in employment
