Professional Development Webinar

Join us on Thursday, February 16th from 1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern Time

Topic: "What Does it Mean to Belong" with guest speakers Joan Haan, PCC and Seetha Karuppiah, ACC

As members of the ICF community, we ascribe to the core values of integrity, excellence, collaboration, and respect. The foundation of these values is a shared commitment to diversity, inclusion, belonging and justice. In this program, we will explore belonging: What does it mean? What does it embody? What values, and stories and experiences inform a deep sense of that word? And how does it affect our relationships and communication with our clients?

Join us in discovering how “Belonging” can help inform your Chapter Vision and as well as Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice as coaches. Bring curiosity as well as vulnerability in a safe but brave space.
