The International Coaching Federation promotes the use of Cultural Competence as a key competency for successful Coaches. However, are there any limitations  to using this as a framework? The research from intersectionality scholars will be used to explore how Coaches can build their critical consciousness by understanding the complex dimensions of social location, privilege, power and oppression. This critical paradigm will also help coaches better understand themselves, avoid blind spots, and support their clients in a larger context to affect relevant, sustainable change to become better leaders.

Join Gail Greenstein, who recently presented her thesis on Coaching and Intersectionality at the Columbia Global Coaching Conference in 2016 and was accepted to present at the Harvard Institute of Coaching in October of 2017.

  • Gail will help us to understand the need for a new framework of intersectionality. 
  • The framework increases the ability for Coaches to place themselves as on a hierarchy of power and privilege.
  • The framework supports the  coaches to develop a system for coaching a diverse clientele and avoid blind spots.
  • For experienced coaches: A great space to have deeper conversations.
  • For newer coaches: A wonderful opportunity to be inspired by the work in the area of coaching.
