The Executive Certification in Diversity Coaching program was by far one of the best professional development experiences I’ve had in my 20+ year career as a learning and organizational development leader. The program design enabled us to learn from a tremendous faculty of experts who are true scholar-practitioners skilled in creating a dynamic learning experience that attends to what are often difficult topics to unpack and work through using the CoachDiversity approach. I feel privileged to be part of this network of coaches and am already applying what I learned.

I have been a Senior Leader in the military for over 2 decades and I found that Coach Diversity helped me remove misconceptions about what Coaching is and what it is not. The concepts and inclusion of ensuring the understanding that the Coach and Client may come from different backgrounds and the importance of understanding that makes for a powerful and transformational coach. Thank you CDI.
I’m deeply grateful for my CDI experience and the opportunity to be part of an amazing community of coaches. The coaching I received during my training helped me to define my north star during a time of transition. I’m committed to continuing to learn and grow as a coach so that I have even more understanding, insight, and enthusiasm to offer my clients as they orient around their own inspiring north stars.
