About this Event

There is a fire raging in the outside world and inside us. Like many organizations and professions, coaching is also entangled in the root causes of this systemic crisis. Many are simultaneously frozen and in chaos, trying to ‘DO’ while at the same time not really knowing what to do. Globally, many are looking to understand humanity and its individual and collective impact, in an effort to address the systems that uphold injustice and inequities.

You’ll be invited to show up in a different way, to pay attention to stories and perspectives, and your own emotions and hidden biases. Bring your full attention, be prepared to listen to both what’s happening in the external world and to your inner state (thoughts, emotions, defences, resistance, relief, etc).

The coaching profession has traditionally focused on supporting change in individuals with little attention paid to systemic influences. Join a panel of coaches, experts in justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI), for a gathering around the virtual campfire. They will discuss the state of the world, and some of the systems that lead to oppression and violence, and the importance of locating coaching within this system of harm. Based on stories and lived experiences, they will highlight the impact of inequities in coaching by answering the following questions:

  • What does it mean to integrate social justice and systems thinking in the coaching profession?
  • What does white supremacy look like in coaching?
  • What do we need to pay attention to for an anti-oppressive approach to coaching?
  • What is the impact on IBPOC clients (if they even come for coaching), on your coaching practice, and on the coaching profession?
  • How do we hold ourselves accountable, both individually and as a profession, to avoid perpetuating systems of oppression and violence?

We hope that this conversation inspires you to explore the many entry points the coaching profession can step into in proactively addressing and dismantling oppressive systems and structures.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of the session, you will be able to:

  1. Explain the impact of white supremacy in coaching
  2. Differentiate between an individual and a systems focus in coaching conversations
  3. Locate yourself in the system and identify a starting point for taking action

Please note that the all proceeds from this event will go towards an organization focused on JEDI efforts of the panelists’ choice.
