About the Event

Join us for a thought-provoking and insightful discussion panel in honor of Black History Month: "The State of the Coaching Industry: Coaching While Black." Taking place on February 21, 2024, at 7:00 PM EST, this free event delves into crucial topics surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion within the coaching profession.

Our expert panelists will dissect the findings of the International Coaching Federation's 2023 white paper on DEI within coaching, shedding light on its implications and potential avenues for progress. We will explore the challenges faced by aspiring coaches in their training journeys, the pervasive biases within the coaching industry that disproportionately affect black coaching professionals, and the stark lack of representation and access to qualified, trained black coaches.

Throughout the 45-minute session, we will examine how these systemic issues impact clients or coachees seeking guidance, navigating cultural differences, and hindering the realization of equitable coaching opportunities. Moreover, our panelists will offer practical strategies and insights aimed at fostering inclusivity and diversity within the coaching landscape.

This event is not only an opportunity to engage in crucial dialogue but also a platform for collective learning and advocacy for change. Following the panel discussion, we invite participants to actively participate in a Q&A session, fostering an open exchange of ideas and perspectives. There will be a discussion group connected to the event where you can continue your conversations with other participants, and share information. Any promotions or marketing posted in this group will be removed. So please, use the group only for continuing the conversation after the panel discussion ends.

Please mark your calendars and join us as we embark on a journey towards a more inclusive and equitable coaching industry. Together, let's shape the future of coaching while acknowledging and addressing the challenges faced by Black/African American professionals in the field.

A Zoom Link will be provided after you register.
