Join organizational development strategist, equitable decarbonization consultant, and ICF accredited coach Alexis Goggans for a thought provoking training on decolonization, systems thinking, and liberation. This training is ideal for organizational development consultants, wellness coaches and environmentalists who are committed to disrupting worldviews and practices that allow racism, sexism, ableism, othering, and ecocide to persist. During this session we will explore topics such as;

  1.  Justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) as theories of practice and topics such as identity, mental models, bias, intersectionality, settler colonialism, systemic oppression, privilege, and liberation
  2. The history of oppression in U.S. American and environmental history, including implications for coaches and consultants
  3.  The science of intergenerational trauma and the psychology of social and collective transformation
  4. Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), ecological and systems-based strategies for cooperation, reciprocity, and liberation

Be prepared for a technical and inquiry based deep dive beyond the standard equity training. Depending on time and energy, we may also host small breakouts to help participants digest, assimilate, and compost the content.
