Leadership Accelerator for DEIB Professionals

A Group Program for Senior Managers, Directors, and Senior Directors

Are you charged with making big change happen in your organization, but not supported in the same ways that executives are?

Are you passionate about making a difference as a DEIB leader, but need support to get there without burning yourself out?

Effective work in diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging requires skills in leadership, change management, influencing, and communications. It requires feeling supported, and having an environment in which to explore the challenges you run into.

 

And yet many organizations hire people into DEIB roles without providing much-needed support and leadership development opportunities.

 

Coaching, community, and meaningful conversation can be great sources of support.

This program provides a unique opportunity to get exposure and experience to executive- level coaching within a community of other DEIB professionals in an environment where co-participants truly understand the unique struggles of this work.

“As an Asian American female leader passionate about making a difference in health and well-being, working with Robin has been professionally life-changing. I've found a stronger sense of confidence, purpose and balance in my work with her coaching."

What My Clients Say

Robin "brings her many years of experience as an executive into coaching as well as her experience as a woman in the workplace. She is skilled at coaching leaders to effectively communicate in a direct, clear, concise yet nurturing way."
"Robin asked perceptive questions to bring me to an understanding of the best path forward. Her guidance, which always included good humor and a caring attitude, gave me confidence and helpful approaches to resolve challenging situations with positive outcomes."

Why I'm Offering this Program

My name is Robin Weinick

A few people have suggested that I become a DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging) Professional. I don’t agree.

 

It’s true that I’ve taken a number of steps in my career in support of diversifying workplaces, and have worked to identify areas in which there are inequities in health care that significantly harm Black and Latino individuals.

 

And yet: the DEIB profession doesn’t need another woman who looks like me and has my background and life experiences.

 

And yet: DEIB professionals are asked to make enormous organizational change, and often don’t have the support they need to do it effectively and without burning out.

This program is my contribution to support DEIB professionals by helping you grow skills in leadership, change management, influencing, and communications - and providing an environment in which to explore the challenges that DEIB professionals run into.

“Robin allowed me the space to formulate my own thoughts around any given issue. She helped me identify root causes and barriers so that I can come up with solutions and reframe my approach when necessary. She never told me what to do or how to think. Instead she listened, provided tools and insight which allowed me to come up with my own process in finding resolutions."
"I knew I wanted to invite Robin to ... our members-only space focused on advancing disability leadership and advocacy. We had a great session with about 15 disabled attendees and it was ... powerful. Robin not only made all of our attendees feel valued and appreciated, but she also kept us engaged throughout the hour-long virtual session with the way that she listened and reflected our shares back to the group. We are taking many of our learnings from the session and implementing them back into our team."
