Healing the Racial Divide

The Unique Contribution of Ontological Coaching

  Enroll in Course

Join Us June 23rd - August 4th

The murder of George Floyd was the global tipping point for awareness of racial injustice and inequity.

After a year of fielding clients’ questions regarding “what can they do,” Ellen and Walter feel it is essential to open up their learning to fellow Newfield graduates who are curious about how to leverage their ontological learning to help heal the racial divide.

We are living and experiencing a time in our history that is calling for participation on many levels.

How can you tap into and call forth your power of ontology, discovery, and resilience in support of healing for our clients, business partners, and communities?

Newfield graduates and executive coaches Ellen Burton and Walter Crawford will facilitate four interactive, live webinars from June through August for the Newfield Alumni community.

What You Can Expect:

These educational and conversational sessions are designed for leaders, facilitators, and professional coaches interested in additional perspectives around racism and how to be part of the solution.

To take the conversations on diversity, equity, and inclusion deeper than simply passive observations, and to apply our ontological training towards solutions for healing the racial divide.

To provide graduates additional insight and application of the tools of ontological coaching.

Dates of Live Sessions:

All sessions will be on Wednesdays for 90-minutes and start at 12 pm ET / 9 am PT.
