Event Details

In this session you will discover more about how "Coaching is a part of a thriving society". This statement from ICF asks coaches to bring equity to the coaching landscape. Ensuring access to coaching all people including the under-represented groups. Given the state of our society, and those in the regions around us, Coaches will be experiencing and addressing the feelings that come with encountering clients' perspectives of identity, privilege, diversity, equity and inclusion.


To be clear, these are issues that affect everyone. Yet for coaches there is a heightened sense of need to demonstrate awareness, mitigate biases, and attune to client. To do this well means incorporating a wider systemic lens of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and justice. Coaches' ability to strengthen core competency #1 and #2: Demonstrate Ethical Practice, and Embodying a Coaching Mindset makes it possible to support the client's context of identity on multiple levels.


In this session with Sackeena Gordon-Jones, PhD, MCC, she will address what the coach needs to know, do and be when coaching someone whose culture, sexual identity, religious belief, social class, ancestral heritage, language, background, etc. are different from yours.
