Diverse clients, especially women and racioethnic minorities, often face external barriers, including various forms of discrimination and bias that negatively affect their career success and satisfaction. Yet, still more struggle with internal roadblocks that undermine their beliefs in themselves and abilities, rob them of their power and passion, deplete their resources and energy, and limit their opportunities to advance in their careers.
However, the nature of professional coaching makes it a powerful and effective strategy for helping diverse clients develop greater self-awareness around how these limitations may be impeding their success. By partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process, coaches can help clients shift mindsets and behaviors so they can “get out of their own way” and achieve their full power and potential.
This webinar will also focus on essential considerations for demonstrating several key ICF Competencies when working with diverse clients.
CCEUs: 1 Core Competency; 0.5 Resource Development

As a long-term champion for gender diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, her primary mission and professional focus are to help women attorneys and leaders better navigate, enhance, and advance their careers more successfully.
Announcing the ICF San Antonio Scholarship:
In order to support the development journeys of coaches from underrepresented populations and those serving clients through non-traditional coaching specialities, ICF San Antonio is launching a scholarship fund to sponsor coach training and certification for these individuals. We are partnering with our coaching community and local organizations to create this scholarship and advance coaching in diverse populations.
Kicking off with this event, participants will have the option to donate $5 or $10 to a scholarship fund. Once funds are secured, the application period will be announced and open for interested parties.
