Dear ICF San Diego Members,
March marks many occasions: It is one year that we have been living with the Covid-19 pandemic, the first day of Spring on March 20, the first day of the Iranian New Year (which is on the first day of Spring) and very importantly, it marks Women’s History Month and International Women's Day (IWD).
The year 2021 marks 100 years since the passing of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. You can learn more about this journey in the National Archives.
For those of you who are continuing your studies on African-American history following Black History Month in February, there are many podcasts and videos you can explore here.
Learning about our history aids us in coaching in a way that honors and celebrates diversity, equity and inclusion. The more we understand where our clients have been and where they want to go, the more we can coach them from a place of empathy and respect.
This month, we continue providing fun networking and learning opportunities, relevant to the environment we are living in. We kicked off the month with the networkshop on the New ICF Core Competencies, which we hope was valuable to you. On March 9, we invite you to the webinar Time and Action Mastering! More details here.
We wish you all well and look forward to seeing you soon.
