Race Matters in Coaching

August 1, 2023 @ 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

Hosted by the ICF Washington State Chapter

This mini-workshop intends to raise awareness about obstacles that keep us from having meaningful race-related conversations in coaching spaces. The workshop offers an introduction to strategies and an opportunity to engage in dialogue with the aim of increasing equity and inclusion in the coaching community. You will leave this workshop with a better awareness of what stops you from engaging in conversations about race, equity, inclusion, and related topics.

The outcome of this workshop will be a beginning awareness of what stops you from speaking so that you can make more conscious choices about where and how you want to have conversations about race, diversity, and the like. We aim to support self-exploration that lays the foundation for transformative change.
