Despite the Government’s rhetoric, much work has still to be done in preparing people for the actual process of “levelling up”. In several studies it has been found that even though education does not overtly or knowingly discriminate between individuals, what is actually assimilated during the process can vary with the economic and environmental circumstances of ethnic minorities. Furthermore, education is not a guarantee of success. We live in a world where unconscious bias and prejudices not only exist but have taken firm root. It is one thing to have laws and policies that help to reduce that bias but that is a very long journey, and no-one knows for certain how far along the road we are.
So how do we thrive in a world where biases exist; conscious or unconscious? How do we avoid taking the world at face value– neglecting the depths that it provides, the benefits it presents, and failing before we even begin. Inclusion is a moral, social, and economic imperative: we all lose when human potential is squandered.
Joy Maitland and Atiya Sheikh will describe their work and how through the power of one-to-one coaching, their coachees were able to capture the facets of success and the strata of efficiency– ingrained within the layers of life – to truly live. It is through coaching that the individuals saw way beyond their current perspective. This growth, subsequently set the stage for the actualization, and realization of their goals and aspirations – often against all odds.
