Rising Awareness

A journey to create a movement that will leave apathy and racial issues behind us. To equip coaches with the skillset to effectively navigate through the "messy and uncomfortable conversations", around racism and social issues of the past, present, and future.

"Difficult conversations about culture and racism will happen, however coaches can change the world one client and one conversation at a time. "

Awareness

The raising consciousness and acknowledging that systemic racism has been and continues to be a part of our story worldwide.

Advocacy

The public act and process of supporting the cause of social change and equality so that apathy does not set in again and again.

Allyship

The public supportive association with another person or group, specifically with members of a marginalized or mistreated group.

Activism

The act of vigorous campaigning to bring about social change through our coaching relationships. One conversation at a time.
