Diversity, culture, 
& inclusion

Coaching plays a crucial role in advancing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice and Belonging (DEIJB) efforts because it is a powerful tool for driving meaningful change and promoting an inclusive environment where all voices are heard and valued.

Individual Growth and Development:

Coaching can help individuals from underrepresented groups overcome barriers, build confidence, and leverage their unique perspectives and experiences to contribute to the organization's success.

​Addressing Bias and Microaggressions:

Coaching plays a crucial role in raising awareness about unconscious bias and microaggressions, helping individuals recognize and challenge their own biases and behaviors. By providing a safe space for reflection and dialogue, coaches can facilitate learning and growth, and help leaders foster a culture of empathy, respect, and inclusion.

​Creating Inclusive Leadership:

Inclusive leadership is essential for driving DEIB efforts and creating a workplace where everyone feels valued and empowered to contribute. I work with leaders to develop self-awareness, empathy, and cultural competence, equipping them with the skills and mindset to lead inclusively, mentor diverse talent, and advocate for equity and justice within the organization.

Building Bridges Across Differences:

Coaching fosters open communication and trust, creating opportunities for meaningful dialogue and collaboration across diverse perspectives and backgrounds. Coaches help individuals build bridges across differences, navigate conflicts, and find common ground, fostering a sense of belonging and cohesion within teams and the broader organization.

Sustaining Long-Term Change:

DEIB efforts require sustained commitment and investment over time. Coaching provides ongoing support and accountability, helping individuals and teams stay focused on their DEIB goals and navigate the complexities and challenges of creating a more inclusive workplace. By embedding DEIB principles into coaching practices, organizations can ensure that diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging become integral parts of their culture and DNA.

Many of us lead very fragmented lives. If we're lucky, we set aside a couple hours a week to what really lights us up in between our busy "9-to-5"s and hectic social and family obligations.

I find it very inspiring, therefore, to connect with people like this week's guest Sharanya Rao, who succeed in "bringing their whole selves" to their day to day and following their passion.
