About the event

In this study, Social Cognitive Career Theory (SCCT; Lent, Brown, & Hackett, 1994; 2000) was the theoretical framework to understand Black Women college students’ career development process that included cultural (person and contextual factors). Due to Black Women embodying two historically oppressed and marginalized identities (gender and race), gendered racial identity salience and experiences of gendered racial microaggressions were included to explore their influence on Black Women college students’ career decision self-efficacy and vocational outcome expectations. Devon Marie Washington completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology at Goucher College, in Maryland and received her Bachelor of Arts in 2013. After college, she pursued and received her Masters of Science degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Baltimore in 2017. Devon earned her Doctor of Philosophy degree in Counseling Psychology in 2023 at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Her interests include the role of racial identity and experiences of microaggression in the career development of Black Women.
