Social Impact: An Antiracism Perspective
June 2, 2022
CCEUs: Core Competencies .75 and .75 Resource Development Credits
The year 2020 is one we will not soon forget.
Not only did the world descend into a life-altering global pandemic, but the US became the epicenter of a racial reckoning ignited by the
killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, among others. Despite the emergence of these traumatic events, 2020 also
allowed us to witness the kindness, empathy and selflessness demonstrated by helping professionals worldwide. We in the coaching
profession were among those contributing to positively transforming the countless lives of people attempting to navigate the day-to-day
uncertainty of their lives.
During this interactive presentation, participants will learn about the growing social impact coaching movement and how it is changing
the coaching profession and the world. Coaches will learn how they can become involved in the movement. In addition, participants will
be introduced to the Racial Just Us Coaching for Community Antiracism Series and learn how this innovative social impact coaching
initiative helps clients examine core beliefs about race and racism.
Participants will also learn why the Coaching for Community Antiracism Series rejects traditional, outdated diversity, equity and inclusion
(DEI) training approaches to instead focus on helping clients produce their own individualized antiracism action plan capable of helping
to create meaningful change in their personal lives, workplaces and communities.
The presentation will conclude with a Q&A session for participants.
