DEIJ Statement At Performance Coach University, we celebrate diversity, and we respect the unique life journeys and life choices of all people. We know that promoting diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in our community and our program has a positive social impact globally. We believe that organizations must recognize their key role to ensure that any strategies developed seek to address these issues and create a more just society.
All members of our organization, as well as the coaches community, have a responsibility to promote equality, dignity, and respect, and most of all to celebrate diversity and to challenge unfairness and discrimination. Embracing diversity as a core value creates a more collaborative culture, especially in the coaching education sector. One of the finest qualities of a professional coach is to develop a capacity to meet their client where they are and provide them with a safe space. By promoting diversity and inclusion as an organization, we believe that we are also supporting the development of our coaches as professionals.
We work daily to create a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible coaching education and profession for individuals who want to become coaches and clients worldwide. As ICF Professionals, we promote a DEIJ approach that recognizes that social identities do not exist in isolation and instead are interconnected and impact one another. We know it is essential that as educators in the coaching industry, we embody the desire to learn and to combine reflective practice with a kind, curious, and caring approach to creating change in inequitable structures.
We welcome all who are willing to join Performance Coach University with a great sense of acceptance regardless of gender, age, race, disability, religion, or any other possible type of discrimination. We encourage our coaches and clients to create a safe and brave space to talk directly about culture, mental health/neurodiversity, and racism and to identify how thinking can be transformed to promote inclusion on every level. As providers of coaching education programs, we are aware we have a unique position – and therefore a unique responsibility – to lead the industry forward and create a more just and equitable training experience. Our leaders and members of our community are required to demonstrate a commitment to reduce the gaps around DEIJ and lead by example.
