A Message from the ICF Toronto Board
People all over the world and coaches in our own Toronto community are taking a stand to make their voices heard following the senseless deaths that have taken place over the past few weeks because of racial discrimination and injustice.
ICF Global in a recent email has powerfully articulated how the coaching we do is part of a much larger system. For us to make a difference in the lives of individuals, organizations and communities, change is needed to address inequality and systemic discrimination.
We want you to know and feel that you are part of a community that is anti-racist, that welcomes everyone, listens and takes an inclusive approach to our programming and services.
We welcome your ideas about what we need to do to be more inclusive of black, indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC) communities. Please reach out to me at email@example.com to share your views and help us see where we may have unconscious biases that need to be addressed. Let’s make sure we are modelling within our chapter what we want to see in the world.

Message from the President, Barb Rosen Schreiber, November 2020
November marked the culmination of our VISION 2020 Virtual Experience, a transformational event for our ICF Toronto Chapter. Our Chapter conference planning committee took an “out of the box” approach to create a virtual experience that brought participants together to connect for a few hours over 10 days, that extended over a three week period. Each week represented a specific theme selected so that overall, the conference provided something for everyone - starting at a macro level; coaching for change in organizations; then focusing on what this means for building a thriving coaching business, and finishing with taking care of ourselves as individuals who serve others by developing our own strategies for building resilience, so that we can thrive as humans first, and then as leaders and coaches.
A special thank you to the incredible contributions of the Conference Planning Committee Volunteers who worked on the VISION 2020 Virtual Conference.
Which of these key themes mentioned by speakers have you used over the past nine months as you pivoted to a different way of working in your place of employment or in your own business?
