Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Justice Statement

Coach The Difference Ltd. is committed to making diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and justice part of everything we do – from our coaching approach to how we design and deliver workshops.

As a coach I aim to help everyone realise and develop their full potential – celebrating and encouraging diversity. This empowers individuals, teams and organisations. Through coaching and workshops I create a safe, supportive space, where I encourage diversity of thought, challenging unconscious bias, recognising and addressing blindspots. This contributes to a more inclusive culture where people feel a sense of belonging. 

Coach the Difference Ltd. is committed to creating positive change, beyond those who we work directly with maximising opportunities for everyone’s strengths to be fully utilised. I therefore share profits with a charity which provides mentors for young people who face personal disadvantage. I also provide pro bono coaching to unemployed professionals and graduates, helping to dismantle the barriers they face.

I believe that diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and justice is a continuous learning journey.  I engage in ongoing learning and development, to ensure that I develop and maintain a mindset that is open, curious, flexible and client centred. I have regular coaching supervision, abide by the International Coaching Federation code of ethics and am a member of their Inclusion & Belonging Special Interest Group.

Coach The Difference aligns itself to the International Coaching Federation definitions of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging.

  • Equity – Ensuring everyone has access to the same resources and opportunities
  • Inclusion – An environment where acts are intentional and deliberate to embrace diversity
  • Belonging – A feeling of being valued, being oneself without judgement
  • Justice – Dismantling barriers to resources and opportunities in society so that all individuals and communities can live a full and dignified life
