Women of Colour in Leadership

Two women sit together engaging in a women of colour in leadership coaching session.

Are you a Black, Indigenous, or woman of colour interested in 1:1 or small group coaching to catalyze your career journey?

In her book “The Memo: What Women of Color Need to Know to Secure a Seat at the Table,” Minda Harts shares that she interviewed more than 100 women of colour and asked them if they used a career coach. Only five said yes. When she asked those five where they heard about executive coaching they said their white colleagues had coaches. 

Meet Valery: Women of Colour in Leadership Coach

As a mixed-race, Latinx woman of colour, Valery understands what it feels like to be the “only one in the room.” This lived expertise lies at the centre of her practice as a career and leadership coach.

“As a former executive with large health and social sector organizations, I have the lived experience of having gained a seat at the table. And, as a woman of colour, I know what it’s like to feel like an outsider even as you take that seat.”
