Learn how to make every conversation an equity conversation.
This 1-day workshop provides you with:
- The essential knowledge to introduce the concept of equity to your team and coaching clients–the “what”
- The foundational skills to center equity in every coaching conversation–the “how”
- The space to practice building relationships as you talk about identity and equity–so that you can internalize the skills
Building off of Elena Aguilar’s best-selling book, Coaching for Equity (2020), you’ll receive additional tools and resources to help you make every conversation an equity conversation. This workshop builds skill and knowledge while also attending to the need to build resilience when leading for equity.

2 LEARNING BLOCKS, 4 HOURS TOTAL
This workshop is a 1-day learning experience, with two 2-hour learning blocks with an hour break in between. You will come together with a Bright Morning facilitator in community to process your learning, explore your identity, build context for systems of oppression, and engage in small group discussion and coaching practice. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) participants will have the option to join BIPOC affinity breakout groups.
This workshop is highly interactive, allowing you the ability to quickly build skills and synthesize learning through role-play practice, and discussion.
"I feel like each time we have our TCA course I walk away empowered, inspired and with more tools to try in my coaching role. I am grateful to have the support from amazing coaches in my class. I think just having lots of time to role play is so beneficial to our practice!"
"The Transformational Conversations Accelerator is like a booster shot for my practice! I feel supported, full of good practice and excellent ideas. I made some great connections with amazing coaches from all over the country (and beyond!)."
"One of the richest impacts has been the web of understanding that’s building around our district as four of the curricular leaders participate in this same membership AND as more and more of our staff members participate in other trainings (Art of Coaching Teams, Coaching for Equity and/or Taste of Coaching for Equity). Having a common frame of reference and range of experiences has changed my learning into a richer, deeper, more powerful community learning experience."
"After 35 years in education, I feel rejuvenated and that I have a new sense of purpose. I will be eternally grateful for Bright Morning. You have been there when I needed you the most and have provided me with immense opportunities for personal and professional growth. I am grateful for Elena and for the dedication of her team to create world-class trainings. I am humbled and blessed to have stretched and grown within the safety of this community."
"In my experience, Bright Morning has always provided relevant, applicable, 'just-in-time' tools that have enabled me to build my practice on solid ground. My Bright Morning Membership has been the silver lining of my year. This offer has paid off exponentially. All learning experiences have added a new layer of understanding for me. Now that I’ve experienced the benefits of a year-long membership, I really can’t imagine going back to a 'once-a-year professional development' approach."
