Executive coaching for marginalized groups

Executive coaching that equips leaders with tools to navigate the unique challenges of identity stereotypes.

Being an effective leader today’s world requires a complex skill set to meet the challenges of a global marketplace. Leaders who are a part of marginalized social groups have an additional challenge of navigating systems where they experience exclusion and isolation. 

Recent research in the field of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion shows that BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women and leaders in other marginalized groups sink extra time and energy into covering aspects of their identity and counteracting the burden of stereotypes and microaggressions. At Amber Mayes Consulting, we specialize in executive coaching that equips leaders with solutions to these unique challenges.
