ICF Minnesota Diversity & Inclusion

What is diversity? 

 

It means understanding that each individual is unique and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.

The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique and recognizing our individual differences.

WHY FOCUS ON DIVERSITY?

 

Diversity is a reality. Diversity transitioned from being an obligatory politically correct buzzword to a reality for the future. (Census Data)

Why is there a Diversity and Inclusion Team? 

The D&I team was started as a response to identify and champion all people in our community of coaching. To have the representation of the ICF reflect the community we serve.
