July 2020 Power & Privilege Workshop Recording
The International Coaching Federation's June 2020 statement condemning racism and systemic inequality stated "the continued perpetuation of systemic inequality is at odds with our shared values and vision as ICF. As coaches, we know that change often beings in moments of discomfort. Change begins with tough conversations. Change begins when we open ourselves to feedback about where we are getting it wrong and to guidance on what we can do to get it right. We must act."
To further this important mission, the ICF Gulf Coast Chapter presented a free, special interactive workshop on the topic of Power and Privilege on July 2, 2020, which was lead by Alexsandra Lantigua, PCC and Grace Flannery, PCC of Quantum Culture. The 2.5 hour workshop was open to the public, as well as coaches, and saw 319 individuals register to be part of this important conversation.
We hope you will watch this recording to open your awareness, begin your own conversations and stand for greater diversity and inclusion.
Quantum Culture Presents Power & Privilege (part 1)
Alexsandra Lantigua, PCC & Grace Flannery, PCC | July 2, 2020
The United States, along with the rest of the globe, is experiencing some of the most major crises of our history. We can no longer deny or hide from America's 401 year -history of racism and injustice towards black people and other people of color - who have lived with the brutal realities of racism for all these years. We have not responded proactively to the devastating impacts of climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic. Our population is polarized, with different factions judging each other and unable to work together towards solutions.
This special 2.5 hour interactive workshop for allies and others who want to be part of the solution offers a bold new approach toward working across our differences, bridging the privilege gaps between different human experiences. It is distinguished from most other curricula in several important ways:
3 Key Takeaways (please include knowledge, skills and/or coaching techniques):
1. Understand how power and privilege operate in society and the workplace.
2. Learn about internal work and relationship skill-building that needs to be done to prepare to engage more successfully and create an inclusive culture.
3. The importance of the ByStander Role and how to skillfully occupy it.
