White privilege coaching program

White Privilege Group

Coaching to navigate privilege healthily

In fostering thriving workplaces, prioritizing diversity and inclusion is paramount for organizational success. Regrettably, the current DEI landscape often overlooks crucial aspects such as privilege, power dynamics, and intersectionality. This oversight perpetuates disparities in psychological safety across society, disproportionately favouring those with privilege. Consequently, leaders, particularly those benefiting from white privilege or settler privilege or other forms of advantage, risk unintentionally perpetuating harm to BIPOC individuals or individuals belonging to the LGBTQ2S+ community.

Embracing anti-racist/ anti-oppressive practices is not only morally imperative but also essential for creating healthy work environments.

Our program is tailored to empower organizational leaders in dismantling systemic inequities and ensuring the provision of ethical and inclusive leadership to everyone. By engaging with this initiative, you’ll be equipped to foster environments where every individual feels valued, respected, and supported, thereby fostering organizational resilience and prosperity.

How does the program work?

Participating in the program, you will have a safe space to do your personal work to implement anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice. We will meet at least once a month.

The minimum duration of the coaching is six months.  Generally, it takes individuals between 1 to 2 years to fully integrate anti-oppressive practices into their lives. Participants will receive regular feedback on their anti-racist/ anti-oppressive practice.

It consists of regular zoom calls, education, homework for self-reflection and email support. The program is trauma-informed.

What you will get out of it

Important terminology

You will break free from white silence and white fragility

Take action

White people need to take action to contribute to anti-racist change. In this coaching program, you will move from talking about it to really doing it.

As a result, you will understand your intersectionality and how it may affect your teams. 

Be comfortable with discomfort

You will learn how to have uncomfortable conversations about race, white supremacy and racism.

Flexibility

The program is tailored to your needs since every individual is at a different stage when it comes to anti-oppressive practices. Sometimes, our own unresolved trauma may prevent us from meaningfully embracing a journey towards social justice.
