In this six-week program, participants will learn and explore the roles that coaches must take in addressing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in every coaching exchange — adapting and evolving the coaches’ mindset and presence to their client's needs. Incorporating teaching as well as practicing, the program embodies the ICF Competencies to build DEIB awareness, knowledge, and discipline to be an effective and empathetic coach. The ICF Core Competencies related to diversity and inclusion are intermingled in the program to train, support, and equip the participants to be successful in “Embracing Diversity in Coaching”.
