In the Feminist Coach Track, you will learn how to integrate your (intersectional) feminist beliefs into your coaching practice and work, and create more powerful change in your clients’ lives, your business, and even your own life.

What is the Feminist Coach Track?

We are Naomi Arnold and Cameron Airen, the co-founders of Developing Coach Collective and Feminist Coach Theory. And, we are excited to invite you to join us in our Feminist Coach Track classes and group calls.

The Feminist Coach Track is a series of classes led by different guest teachers on a variety of topics in relation to feminism, coaching, and your biz.  In these trainings, you will have the opportunity to learn what Feminist Coach Theory is and how you can integrate a feminist and social justice lens into your business, work, life and practice. 

Each month, the guest teachers – who are leading experts in their field – will take you through a different component of Feminist Coach Theory. You can choose to attend all of the classes or simply attend those that appear relevant to your field or work.

We look forward to hopefully seeing you in class!

Feminist Mindset Coach and Gender Consultant Cameron Airen will teach a class on the role that patriarchal gender conditioning play in our lives and work, and how you can move beyond the gender binary. Cameron’s years of academic study and experience with clients will inform their lesson in how such knowledge can be applied to our coaching methodologies, client work, businesses, marketing messages and systems.

Seasoned consultant and facilitator Desiree Adaway will teach us how the ‘isms’ – including capitalism, racism, sexism, ableism, and classism show up in our work as coaches and in the experiences of our clients. In this class, we will learn how to become aware of oppression and privilege – and how this social awareness can be applied to our coaching practice and business.

Our mental health and traumas impact how we show up in our business and for our clients. Our clients’ mental health and traumas will also impact their coaching experience. In this class, life coach + therapist Nicole Lewis Keeber will teach us the difference between big ‘T’ and little ‘t’ trauma. We will also learn how an awareness of mental health and trauma can enhance our coaching skills, abilities and business.

In this class, award-winning business coach and founder of CEO DNA, Lena West, will teach members how to free themselves and their businesses from the ‘bro culture’ of business. For too long, we have been socialised to believe that succeeding in business requires acting hardcore and void of feeling. She will discuss how we can be free of this and build a coaching business that loves us.

Women are socially conditioned to put other people first, other needs, other opinions, other desires. Creator of the ‘How To Be A Woman And Not Give A Fuck’, Airial Clark, will teach us how we and our clients can become aware of, unpack and break free of this conditioning – ultimately deciding and acting upon what we each uniquely want to care about and become.

Live Class: January 2020

Many coaches want to speak out about oppressive beliefs and injustices – racism, sexism, and homophobia – but don’t know where or how to begin. We often find ourselves feeling anxious, overwhelmed, tongue-tied and wary of conflict. In this class, consultant Nicole Lee will teach us how we can confidently and courageously have such conversations with our clients, communities, families and friends.

Live Class: February 2020

Sex therapist, Celeste Hirschman M.A. will teach on her Somatica Method –  a relational and experiential body-based approach to sex and relationship coaching. We will learn how to become aware of sexuality development and social roles, tap into our own wisdom and resources, realise our full potential, deepen our experiences of pleasure and embodiment – and how to support our clients in doing so too. 

Live Class: March 2020

Gutsy coach, leader, artist, speaker and writer Sharyn Holmes will be teaching a class on privilege, racial trauma awareness and minimising harm in coach/practitioner-client relationships. So many folk experience shortcomings in their experiences with coaches / therapists / practitioners who are not well-versed in these areas. They are not getting the care and support they deserve – let’s learn how to change this.

Live Class: April 2020

Have you ever thought about how connecting with your ancestors might impact your life, business and work with clients? Have you ever thought about how supporting your clients in connecting with their ancestors might be transformative too? In this class, we will learn how from spiritual worker, mother, ancestral healer and Okanagan First Nations member, student and teacher Darla Antoine.

Live Class: May 2020

The traditional wellness paradigm reinforces harmful body and beauty standards. Former health coach turned writer, speaker + educator Melissa Toler will teach us how our coaching goals, methods and messaging in the health, wellness and fitness spheres could be potentially harmful and what we might like to consider changing in supporting our clients, audience + self in a more healthy way.

Live Class: June 2020

We bring our unconscious biases to our coaching, as do our clients. Author, facilitator, social historian, and creative word artist Leesa Renee Hall will teach a class on how to disrupt our unconscious bias. We will learn how to use and support our clients in using the art of self-enquiry and expressive writing to question unconscious bias in order to create truly inclusive communities, companies and corporations.

What is Feminist Coach Theory?

Our definition of Feminist Coach Theory:

“Feminist Coach Theory is an integrative approach to coaching that combines the practice of coaching with feminist philosophies and social justice teachings. Feminist Coach Theory adopts a critique of patriarchy, systems of oppressions and power to question the different ways we’ve been socialised and oppressed (based on gender, race, sexuality, class, ability etc) and how this shows up for the coach and client in their lives, goals, and relationships with self, other and each other. It employs an examination of the dynamic between self-awareness and social awareness to interrupt dominant ways of thinking and acting, access our inner and outer liberation, expand possibilities and options, identify possible strategies and solutions, and ultimately create new ways of thinking, being and acting within ourselves, with each other and in the world.”

Why should you join the Feminist Coach Track?

We believe from our experience of coach training and working with clients who are coaches and helping professionals, one of the missing elements from many business and training programs is learning how feminist theory and having a social awareness can enhance your coaching skills, ability to support your clients and capacity to build a sustainable, healthy business.

The goal of the Feminist Coach Track is therefore to enable you to:

  • Learn the principles of feminist coaching theory and know how to apply these to your coaching practice, client work and business;
  • Learn about social justice issues and how you can integrate your learnings into your business and work with clients;
  • Recognise the ways that internalised oppression and internalised superiority impact your coaching practice, client work and business;
  • Feel confident and courageous in speaking up about oppressive beliefs and injustices in your coaching, business, work and life;
  • Become aware of your unconscious bias and how this is impacting your work with clients – as well as how their unconscious bias might be impacting their goals and life;
  • Become aware of how connecting to your ancestors can benefit your business, coaching and work with clients;
  • Understand the nuances of supporting (and/or referring on) people who experience mental health challenges and trauma;
  • Recognise how your mental health, personality and potentially previous trauma show up in your work, business and coaching; and
  • Ultimately become a more skilled, capable and impactful coach – whilst still attracting clients, showing up like a CEO and building a thriving business.

We believe this is training all service-based professionals should undertake. It will enhance your coaching abilities and capacity to serve your clients – and will transform your own life and business journey.

Alternatively, you can purchase one class ONLY by simply going to the class you want to purchase above and clicking the ‘buy this class’ option. If you want to buy a class at a time, the rate is $300 AUD per class. If you plan on attending multiple classes, the above package options might be better suited for you. 

What are the BONUS FCT Integration Calls?

Throughout the year, Cam and/or Nai host quarterly integration calls with Feminist Coach Track members to help them transform the THEORY learned in class into PRACTICE.

These calls provide an opportunity for you to:

  • talk more in depth about what you’ve learned in the FCT classes to date;

  • discuss how what you’ve learned in class can be applied to your individual context in business, client work, and life;

  • practice feminist coach theory through guided self coaching and with other members on the group call; 

  • go over potential or current client scenarios and options for approaching them from a feminist perspective; and

  • to ask any follow-up questions from class or about how you can specifically integrate learnings into your work.

We believe it is important to practice putting the theory into practice and we want to make an opportunity and supportive environment for you to do that.

Please Note: The integration calls are only available to those who sign up for a full 12 Class Pass.

Who is the FCT for?

  • You already have a coaching business, are a coach-in-training, are ready to start a coaching business and/or a business or profession in a similar field.

  • You identify as or want to learn more about becoming a feminist coach.
  • Creating an ethical and socially aware business is important to you.

  • You do not identify as a feminist or wish to learn about feminist coaching theory and approaches.
  • You are not open to learning about different perspectives and experiences.
  • You are in business exclusively to make money and advance your personal status and career – and honestly don’t care if your approach is socially aware or inclusive.

1. When does the program run?

The first live Feminist Coach Track class was in July 2019 and the final live class is in late June 2020. You can view a schedule of when the Feminist Coach Track classes will be held here. Please keep in mind that some call times still have yet to be announced. Just like a virtual summit, classes and calls will be recorded and those who can’t attend live or who purchase the class/es after the live call will receive the recording/s.

2. How will the classes be structured?

Each live class will be structured differently. We have deliberately left the structure of classes up to the guest teacher. Some classes might be in ‘lecture’ format, others might be more interactive or workshop-structured, and others might be an interview format. Nai and/or Cam will attend every live class, briefly introducing the guest teacher and handing it over to them to facilitate the class (unless/until their input/assistance is required).

3. Is this program for coaches only?

This program is for coaches and/or those who integrate coaching skills or methods in their work with clients. We suspect in addition to coaches, that other helping professions such as therapists, healers, mentors, facilitators, personal trainers and leaders will be interested in joining to gain insight to how to integrate feminist coach theory in their practice.

4. Are you paying the guest teachers?

Yes! When designing the Feminist Coach Track we knew we wanted a faculty of expert teachers in a range of topics related to feminism and social justice. We also wanted to offer the Feminist Coach Track in a way that not only enabled members to access the best training possible, but also supported and respected the guest teachers.  In alignment with our feminist values, we wanted to pay the guest teachers and ensure those who take part in the training are committed, willing and ready. We therefore want you to know upfront that the teachers will be paid $100AUD per participant enrolled in their class  – so the more people who sign up for their classes, the more the teachers will get paid. We cannot wait to tell the teachers who have enrolled in their classes!

5. Will I be able to ask the guest teachers specific questions?

Yes! Although each class will be led by the teacher in their chosen format, there will be an opportunity to ask question if you attend the classes live. If you cannot attend live and have purchased the class prior to the live call, you can presubmit questions at developingcoachcollective(at)gmail(dot)com – Cam or Nai can then ask the question on your behalf.

6. Is it possible to buy a class and then upgrade to a package option later?

Please contact us at developingcoachcollective(at)gmail(dot)com to discuss should you wish to explore this option.

7. When will the calls be held? And what if I can’t make them live?

The Feminist Coach Track calls have been scheduled at varied times to accommodate the guest teacher and host. You can view the current call schedule here (please keep in mind that some times are still yet to be announced). If you cannot attend them live, you will receive a recording and links to any referenced resources. Where possible, we will also invite you to pre-submit questions ahead of the live call and we will ask them on your behalf.

8. Will there be a Facebook group for participants?

No there will not be a private Facebook group or online community for the Feminist Coach Track specifically.

9. Is there a refund and cancellation period?

The refund/cancellation conditions vary depending on which package you purchase. View our refund and cancellation policy here for details.

10. Will you have a scholarship or accessibility options?

Since we will be using a portion of your payments to pay the guest teachers, we do not have a full scholarship position available for the Feminist Coach Track. However, we are open to discussing partial scholarship options if the program is not currently accessible to you. Please email us at developingcoachcollective(at)gmail(dot)com if you would like to enquire about applying for a partial scholarship.

11. We note you have not used the term ‘intersectional feminism’ and this concerns me. Is this program intersectional?

As you may have assumed by our definition of Feminist Coach Theory and the topics covered in this program, we aspire to have intersectional frameworks in our approach to feminism. We recognise, however, that many white folx have used Kimberlé Crenshaw’s ‘intersectional feminism’ in a tokenistic way and co-opted it for their own gain and image – leading to a number of women of colour requesting that white feminists not use this term. We acknowledge multiple systems of oppression (racism, ableism, classism, heterosexism, whorephobia, ageism, etc.) and believe they are all connected, and aim to transform them in our work and lives.

12. Is this program for women only?

No. This program is for all gender identities. For your information, Naomi uses she/her pronouns and Cameron uses she/they pronouns. 

15. Paypal doesn’t work for me. Are there other options for payment?

There absolutely is! Please email us at developingcoachcollective(at)gmail(dot)com and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible to arrange other payment options.

16. Where can I ask more questions?

Please send any questions you have to developingcoachcollective(at)gmail(dot)com and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
