Diversity and opportunity in the coaching profession
Working towards spaces and practices that allow people to be welcome, safe, heard and equal.

Coaches are more diverse than you might think, and the diversity of our profession adds to the richness of what coaches as a whole offer our clients and their organisations and systems. But whenever biased or narrow views exist, such as who makes a great coach, or which coaches are deemed suitable to include in a coach-matching process, then we are all damaged, and most particularly those coaches who are excluded or ignored.

Attending to issues of social justice is as important a task for the profession as for our clients.

This webinar offers another much-needed opportunity that we can all naturally choose to be involved in, to help us see ourselves more clearly and to identify opportunities for widening practices and spaces for coaching and for coaches.

The questions which we have asked our speakers to address, are questions which every coach - regardless of who we are - can usefully explore.

Please see our panel guests below.
