Diversity and Inclusion matters – exploring unconscious bias
At ACT and Brown School of Professional Studies we are committed to diversifying our coaching community and training our coaches to meet clients with compassion, not judgment. We are committed to exploring unconscious bias in ourselves and to helping our clients and students do the same.
Durodgio Peterson, LPCC Alumni and Diversity & Inclusion Leader discusses the importance of diversity and inclusion in coaching. “When you can influence one leader who is leading 500 employees it impacts not only those 500 employees but the 500 employees families, the communities they’re in and the people they’re connected to. Now is the time for coaches to get out there and start to have these conversations and start to lead in a way that is coach-like and help to impact other coaches so they start to show up authentically, directly, influentially and impact what’s happening in the world”.
ACT continues to evaluate and refine our content and teaching strategies, all with the aim of creating diverse and inclusive learning environments. We stand with all those who are calling for justice and we hold ourselves accountable for helping to create a more just and equitable society.
Our work makes an impact, let’s partner together.
