 Guiding you toward more meaningful impact response

Don’t React. Respond. 

Identity-related bias incidents are consciously, unconsciously, explicitly or implicitly expressed acts or interactions that individuals or groups experience negatively through the lenses of identity. These incidents and interactions impact sense of belonging and undermine efforts to build and sustain inclusive working, learning and living environments.

Most leaders can recognize bias impact, but often question next steps or feel stumped by community or employee calls for accountability or action. 

Bias Impact Response coaching supports the transformation of rushed reactions into thoughtful and meaningful responses that prioritize people.

FAQ: BIAS IMPACT RESPONSE COACHING

 

Why is transformative impact response different?

While the culturally “popular” response to identity-related bias incidents is to shame and punish, we know that rarely produces the kind of meaningful or systemic changes that people and organizations are seeking.  A transformative approach encourages us to invite accountability and move towards repair and deeper understanding while focusing on humanizing everyone involved in real and tangible ways.

What is the benefit of bias impact response coaching?

Transformative impact response coaching equips you to engage approaches and develop processes that promote naming impact and harm, listening to and educating one another, and encouraging accountability that builds, repairs, and restores relationships when identity-related bias incidents occur.

Who would benefit from impact response coaching?
  • Organization and team leaders,
  • Faculty, teachers, counselors
  • DEI, human resources, and student affairs professionals,
  • Mediators and facilitators,
  • Trainers and workshop coordinators,
  • Community organizers and advocates,
  • Individuals committed to co-creating and supporting equitable and inclusive communities 
How can impact response coaching help improve sense of belonging in my organization or group?

Individuals involved in bias incidents or interactions frequently experience a sense of isolation, vulnerability and report feeling unsupported. Impact response coaching can build your capacity to respond more effectively with care and empathy.

What if my organization/group isn't ready to implement a formal impact response process?

Meaningful support most often begins with “first responders” or the individuals that are most likely to witness or be told about a bias incident or interaction. Being equipped to engage those impacted by a identity-related bias incident increases the possibility restoring a sense of belongingness, reducing additional harm, and moving forward in meaningful ways. Impact response coaching and training prepares you to respond in ways that prioritize people and their support needs.
