BIPOC Collaborative Connections

I'm excited to introduce you to BIPOC Collaborative Connections, an online community committed to fostering inclusivity and equity for individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) with diverse identities. As an Inclusive Coach and a Black Neurospicy woman, I profoundly understand the unique intersectional experiences that marginalized individuals encounter. Drawing from my extensive experience in the non-profit sector, I am acutely aware of the challenges and isolation that individuals of color face when striving to establish inclusive spaces. However, we don't have to carry this burden alone. Join our community of coaches and let's collaboratively create a space where BIPOC individuals can connect, exchange experiences, and support each other on the journey to a more equitable and inclusive world.

Our community offers a haven for coaches of color to express themselves, collaborate, and access the support they require. We firmly believe that it's not the identities of marginalized individuals that need fixing, but rather the systems and structures responsible for inequality. Our goal is to understand and deconstruct these societal structures by bolstering our community, which, in turn, equips us to support our coaching clients effectively.

Join us at BIPOC Collaborative Connections and let's work together towards a more inclusive and equitable world. Additionally, we extend our support to organizations as a dedicated coaching resource group, thereby making a significant impact toward achieving equity.

Mentor Coaching with Jo Bennett, ACPC, PCC, ACE

Engage with confidence in a personalized 1:1 space where you can flourish as a coach!

For five years I have mentored clients in the early stages of their coaching journey: individuals in ICF accredited education programs, those applying for an ACC or PCC credential, as well as ICF members renewing their ACC credential. I am specifically trained in mentor coaching, and I am registered as a mentor coach with the ICF.

I take a coach approach with mentor clients to deepen their self reflection skills, collaborating to explore growth edges while celebrating current gifts. There is ample time to steep in the ICF Code of Ethics and Core Competencies for rich alignment. We co-generate thoughtful feedback on two or more recorded calls. My coach clients build on insights discovered during and between our sessions, as they witness their growth in their own client’s results.

More information is available on my website: https://solomojo.ca/icf-mentor-coach/

It is a joy and privilege to work with newer coaches. Their dedication to learning inspires me to grow and thrive as a professional.

I look forward to working with you!
