We invite all working professionals who identify as BIPOC and are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of under-resourced and underserved communities to apply to the Scholars Program. No prior coaching experience is needed to participate in the Scholars Program.
Core Program Features
All training will be delivered virtually.
A highly personalized, one-of-a-kind coach training and certification experience that prepares BIPOC professionals to become best-in-class coaching practitioners. Each cohort consists of up to 15 BIPOC scholars from diverse industries.
The dynamic curriculum provides scholars with in-depth learning that positions them to guide transformative action plans that help people achieve their goals and immediately impact their communities. Learn more about the program, including the program value, eligibility requirements, and scholars journey, by reviewing the program overview and FAQs.
We partner with the Institute for Integrative Intelligence, an ICF Accredited Coach Training Program with over a decade of experience providing highly personalized, people-centered coach training that disrupts linear thinking and other antiquated paradigms that inhibit human growth. With its commitment to inclusion, student success, and democratizing access to coach training, there is supreme alignment between the missions of CFE and the Institute for Integrative Intelligence.
CFE ensures that every instructor has been vetted as having a combination of lived experience as a member of a marginalized population and/or extensive training in anti-racism.
We ask our scholars who participate in the Scholars Program to commit to their personal learning journey, individual excellence, and the success of current and future scholars by:
