A Different Kind of Coaching Program
Most people will tell you that you should have various mentors to fill different roles in your professional and personal life. But if you are a Black Indigenous People of Color, you need at least one BIPOC mentor.
Black Indigenous People of Color have particular career challenges in the business world, and we believe the same is true in the faith-based space. Back in 2001, Harvard Business Review wrote about mentoring ethnic minorities. The review shined light on the reality that professionals of color should be mentored differently than white counterparts.
One reality that we have found to be consistent with most of our Leadership Cohort participants is that many have never been mentored. Freedom Road aims to meet the need for deep development of future leaders of color in faith-based spaces. We are thrilled to announce our second annual leadership coaching cohort. Please help us celebrate them and pray for them as they seek to make a better world. They are:
Director of the Future of Hope Institute
Executive Director of the Selma Center for Nonviolence, Truth & Reconciliation
Project Director, Solidarity Building Initiative for Liberative Carceral Education at Cook County Jail, McCormick Theological Seminary
Founder/Director at Jesus and Justice. Founder/Director at Christian Creatives for Justice
Lead Pastor of Restore Austin
Staff at Athletes in Action at UC Berkeley and Lenses Institute
Staff at Cru – Lenses Institute
Diversity and Race Specialist/Apprentice at Restoration Counseling
Mujerista and author of Hermanas: Deeping Our Identity and Growing Our Influence (IVP)
President of The Witness and best-selling author of The Color of Compromise
Counselor, Recovery Services at Asian Counseling and Referral Service
These are the leaders we at Freedom Road have the pleasure to coach so that they can reach their fullest potential. We honor what God is doing in them and their work.
