OUR COACHING LENS
Every coach has their own personal style and also a lens through which they view the world and will work to shape your own growth and leadership. Here's what we value and teach:
We will explicitly name white supremacy and locate ourselves in the nexus of it. White supremacy is an historically-based and institutionally-perpetuated system of oppression that benefits whiteness (and all the values, norms, and fears that come with that) at the expense and exploitation of people of color, Indigenous peoples, and immigrants, for the purpose of sustaining access to privilege, power, and wealth.
We will take personal responsibility. None of us created white supremacy, and each of us is responsible to dismantle it so there is space for something new and just to take its place.
We will center equity. We coach through an explicitly anti-racist, anti-oppression, trauma-informed lens that invites our whole and healed selves to be part of this lifelong work.
We will build our internal capacity for this work. We value humility, curiosity, abundance, nurturance, resilience, racial embodiment, integrity, trustworthiness, and accountability as core competencies anti-racist leadership.
We will honor the past, stand firmly in the present, and look bravely to the future. We draw throughlines that connect our struggles and hopes today to the centuries-long struggles and hopes of those who have come before and those will come after us.
We will adopt a new way of life. We believe that this lens can be applied to every single aspect of life, without exception, from profoundly transformative relationships to more mundane but necessary tasks like creating personnel policies, navigating interpersonal conflict, and how we define and measure success of our efforts.

Next, you'll download and register on Voxer, a free app that will let us communicate by text or voice messages (kind of like a walkie-talkie!). You can use it on your mobile device or computer, whichever is most convenient for you. We'll use it to chat back and forth during our coaching period!
