Torpey Coaching and DE&I
I recently attended a DE&I Workshop for coaches.
I learned that while I'm thoughtful about diversity, equity, and inclusion - they are all things I think about as I write, create, connect, and share - I'm not as intentional as I either want to be, or is as needed, with my work in this area.
Through this workshop, it became clear to me that one of the first steps I could take toward greater intention with DE&I would be to create a diversity, equity, and inclusion statement for my business and community.

Beyond this first step, I endeavor to be more regular, more consistent in addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion in my business and in my day-to-day life.
I will not be quiet any longer. I see now that bystanding is not inclusive.
Taking no action, and not using my voice as a platform to raise the voices of those who are NOT heard does not help the cause of DE&I.
I stand for diversity, equity, and the inclusion of ALL humans.
I am a safe space for all humans.
I want you to know that you are welcome here.
I will not always get it right, but I am open to learning, to working, and will do my best not to cause harm.
