The Equity-Centered Difference

Equity-Centered Coaching® is our proprietary approach to coaching and leadership that pulls from the disciplines of coaching, cultural psychology, facilitation, trauma-informed practice, and antiracism in order to teach a framework that prioritizes self-determination, consent, cultural responsiveness, and high-quality coaching practice that can be used in a variety of coach/coachee, mentor/mentee, and manager/team member relationships.

Our Priorities





DEI & Anti-Oppression Practice

At the Institute for Equity-Centered Coaching® we prioritize high-quality training of coaches and business leaders so that they can build and lead diverse teams, serve a wide range of clients and have a broad set of skills allowing them to be culturally responsive and in their practice, while prioritizing equity, inclusion, diversity, and antiracism. This knowledge and skill set lasts far beyond the latest trend in marketing, or sales.

This is a dynamic, science-based approach to coaching and leadership that you just won’t get anywhere else. Period.

This often puts us at odds with our nature as social beings.

How do we balance the need for our own growth, goals, and agency while honoring our interdependence?
