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, July 2020
As our summer programming comes into full bloom, I am excited to see so many opportunities that allow our ICF Toronto community to participate in webinars that offer insights and tips as a result of listening to speakers who have deep expertise. These sessions also invite us to engage in discussions and share opinions, ideas and experiences with each other in groups that are facilitated by one or more Board members. I believe it is through forums that encourage dialogue that bring out the richness of diversity of thought and perspectives that build our character as a community.
With your active engagement, we increase our potential as a Chapter to shape marketplace awareness and advancement of the coaching profession. Imagine the ripple effect if each of us applies something we have learned from a colleague during one of our Chapter discussions and uses this in a way that has a positive impact with clients or within our community. Consider the impact we have as coaches in bringing out the best in our clients. Picture the ripple effect of adding up each of the clients we have worked with so far this year, and the people they, in turn, have impacted. If each connection is seen as a spark of light, then as a community we are creating an incredible constellation.
This is who we are as a vibrant community. Looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming July Events.
