About the Keynote and Speaker
The Future of Coaching is Inclusive: As demand grows for coaches with specialized expertise, are you ready to coach people different from you? Dr. Towanna Burrous will discuss how coaches surround themselves with clients who are "just like me" and how that idea limits the ability to meet the increased demand for more coaches. She will also cover how you can improve your diversity awareness, leading to a more diverse practice.
Dr. Towanna Burrous: Dr. Burrous is President of CoachDiversity Institute, a best-selling author, trainer, and ICF professional certified coach based in Washington, DC. As a much sought-after executive coach, Towanna and the CoachDiversity team deliver training, curriculum, and customized diversity and leadership programs for corporate and individual clients.
CCE units are offered for the speaker portion of the Awards Gala, upon request.
