Ed Parsloe and Ayman Nasreldin - The OCM: Exploring Systemic D&I Challenges in the Coaching and Mentoring Profession

Session on 19 November 2021 13:20 UTC - View on timetable


Ed Parsloe & Ayman Nasreldin will be running a “conversation café” style session to explore the systemic diversity and inclusion challenges that exist within the coaching profession. Seeking concrete actions, they will facilitate an open and honest dialogue that aims to explore:

  • What does diversity and inclusion mean to you?
  • How comfortable are you talking about these issues?
  • What could we be doing to be more diverse in coaching and mentoring? (e.g. how do we recruit/train/support)
  • What could we be doing to be more inclusive?
  • How do we change the conversations in the marketplace so more diverse coaches are selected?
  • What targets should we set and what are our ambitions to make change happen?
