We hope you can Attend the annual ICF Wisconsin Membership meeting.
This year, you will hear from the ICF Wisconsin Executive Committee on an exciting year as well as what the future holds for our chapter. We will include plenty of time and opportunities to network, connect and meet other coaches in our chapter. You register to attend in person or virtually.
We will host an informal happy hour at Good City Brewing in Milwaukee right after the meeting from 3pm-5pm.
As part of our DEI initiatives, speaker, Deborah Biddle will present on "Understanding and Preventing Microaggressions."
This session will improve coach awareness of microaggressions by facilitating opportunities for participants to discover common examples of everyday microaggressions as well as develop ways to avoid the remarks that tend to offend and create unwelcoming work environments. In most workplaces, daily exchanges between team members encompass a wide variety of personalities with varying degrees of conversation. What happens when those conversations drift into stereotyping — specifically, the subtle type? Unconsciously and unintentionally, comments from one employee may offend another employee resulting in the commission of a “microaggression.” Typically, these microaggressions arise from assumptions or stereotypes about an individual or group of people based on their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or age.
Participants who attend Deb's program will earn .5 Core Competency and .5 Resource Development CCEs.
