Individuals from a Diverse Ethnicity background may face particular workplace challenges such as lack of career progression, inequality, isolation, micro aggression, discrimination, insecurity and frustration.
UMO’s Diverse Ethnicity Coaching can help individuals articulate those challenges in a confidential and non-judgemental space and allows them to reflect on their experiences and work with their coach. Individuals can refocus and trust they will be heard and validated to promote self-acceptance and a positive self-image.
