“Do Good and Don’t Just Avoid Bad”

May 20, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free – $10.00

Panel Discussion
by Sonia Layne-Gartside
Sharletta Green

CCEs: 1.5 (core)

In this third installment of ICF-Pittsburgh’s “Courageous Conversations on Race” we will explore the ICF Code of Ethics Section IV: 28 (I am aware of my and my clients’ impact on society.  I adhere to the philosophy of “doing good” versus “avoiding bad”) in light of current global social, political and health crises. Our expert panelists will provide their perspectives on how current events impact the client / coach relationship and how coaches can be prepared to address these challenges rather passively ignore them.  Group sharing will provide the opportunity to consider other thoughts and approaches to develop a personal plan to confidently “do good” in interactions with clients specifically and society in general.

In this presentation participants will:

  • Explore the ICF Diversity Statement and ICF Code of Ethics tenets when applied to race issues
  • Discuss how do we honor these ICF principles as coaches and as individuals
  • Discover the impact we have on society, at large

You may find it helpful to take a look at the ICF Diversity Statement Code of Ethics at this link: Diversity and Inclusion at ICF – International Coaching Federation before the webinar.
