Coaching for social change

Coaching Webinar – How Race Matters: Coaching for Social Change

Coaching has only just begun to dip its toe into the waters of critical awareness and critical consciousness as a professional practice. We have begun to ask questions such as: โ€˜What and who are the dominant coaching norms serving?โ€™; โ€˜What are the ethical implications of coaching in oppressive contexts?โ€™; and โ€˜Can coaching itself be experienced as oppressive?โ€™ This session will share research findings from interviews carried out with Black, indigenous and other coaches of colour from the UK, USA, Africa and New Zealand. They discussed with me the question โ€˜What needs to change for the world of coaching to take an anti-racist approach?โ€™

The session will highlight the steps the research suggests are needed for us to engage with coaching as a social change process.

Who Should Attend?

The socially and politically orientated, curious and humanistic who are looking to engage with existential, systemic, human liberation issues in coaching.
