Coaching For Everyone, a dynamic 501(c)(3) was founded in 2020 by VLC Executive Director, J. Victor McGuire, Ph.D. As a for-profit enterprise that champions change in the coaching industry, Velocity Leadership Consulting upholds its purpose-driven mission with its nonprofit arm. CFE is designed to provide complimentary coaching and leadership services to traditionally under-resourced populations, particularly BIPOC young adults, K-12 educators, and nonprofit employees.
Coaching for Everyone has also partnered with CTI to establish its Coaching Fellowship Program. Each year, CFE and CTI will certify at least 100 BIPOC professional coaches. Sponsor the BIPOC professionals and leaders at your firm and see the impact first hand.
Data on the demographics of certified coaches are not published, but anecdotal evidence suggests that only 3-5% of coaches are people of color.
What if there were more BIPOC people coaching and being coached? What kind of impact could that have? CFE seeks to answer these questions by living its mission statement:
The CFE Fellowship Program is on track to achieve its goal of certifying 100 BIPOC individuals as professional coaches each year
CFE plans to coach 100 under-resourced BIPOC individuals
As we further our reach, coaching training curriculums will be updated to address issues affecting BIPOC professionals
