    ICF NJ invites you to attend a Community Discussion about
    Raising Our Social Consciousness – What Do Coaches Need to Learn, Understand & Change about Inequities in Our Society

    As professional coaches our work is to help people have AHA moments that deepen their self-awareness which then prompt personal change and transformation. Coaches also commit to continuous learning and seeking opportunities to examine our beliefs, blind spots, and implicit biases so that we can live and serve as caring human beings and agents of change for our world.

    Systemic racism ends with each of us. Social justice and societal equality begin with each of us. We believe a first step in understanding systemic inequality and racism and how both are experienced by marginalized individuals, people of color, and more, is to come together and learn from each other to deepen our self-, other-, and societal-awareness. Our collective learning becomes that much richer through sharing and listening to each other’s lived experiences, challenges, and perspectives.

    This free webinar is an opportunity for all coaches to meet within a collective, online forum (and possibly break into smaller groups), to share stories and learn from each other’s lived experiences and perspectives as they relate to systemic racism, societal inequalities, and social injustices.

    We will be using the following resources as the foundation for our discussion. Please be sure to watch them in advance of the webinar.

    1. Systemic Racism Explained

    3. Implicit Bias – Melanie Funchess

    Using the above resources as a starting point, we will:

    • Share and listen to examples of systemic racism, societal inequalities, and social injustices as they have shown up and have been experienced by participants.
    • Be curious, ask questions, examine our understanding, and notice opportunities where we can shift our perspective, change, and grow.
    • Identify and contribute to ways that ICF-NJ could commit to ongoing awareness and change


    We hope you will join us for this vital conversation!

    Note: We will not be recording this webinar. You will need to attend in real time to be a part of the conversation.
