Topic: Does One Size Fit All? Racial Disparity in the Coaching Industry


About six years ago, when I perused literature, the internet, and even the ICF global portal, I could not find research that explored the possibility of race being an influential factor in the coaching business. I was concerned that diversity and multicultural awareness were not included in ICF's core competencies, and I also pondered several issues:
· Does race have a bearing on significant aspects of coaching?
· Can there be an inadvertent impact on people of color when paired with white coaches?
· Do white coaches receive training/guidance that addresses racial idiosyncrasies?  
I am pleased to report that research has explored this topic since those days of frustrating queries. I look forward to sharing the studies and asserting that the core principles of effective coaching can be enhanced by embracing the reality that one size does NOT fit all.

With this series, we will explore some of the situations experienced coaches deal with alone while creating a safe, confidential space to learn from each other.  Even busy, experienced coaches have to keep up with changes in the business world that impact their businesses.

How will this Forum work?

- This is more about conversation rather than a “presentation” of information. Just enough topical background will be given at the start of the meeting to provide a foundation for dialog that anyone can participate in.
- This forum is meant to be a collaborative learning experience. We want to experience confidential ego-less conversations about the challenges and successes we experience as coaches while learning from each other.
- This session will be held on Zoom, and use of video is encouraged but not required. NOTE:  The Zoom link is included in your event registration confirmation. Please retain that email!
- Prior registration is required.
- Speak about your experiences. Speaking about what has worked for you is perfectly okay, but avoid advice-giving directed at others; our intent is purely to learn from each other.
- This is a confidential “space” for you to feel free to say what you need to. Please maintain confidentiality by not naming clients or their organizations.
-Meetings will not be recorded.
-What goes on here stays here. Please do not discuss what you heard on the call after the call ends.
