President's Message
 
I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful summer! It was so great to see so many of you at our Summer Social. We had a great turnout! Thanks again to Mary-Ellen Hynd, Jenny Barkan and Jane Graydon for organizing this:) Everyone enjoyed being back together again “live and in person”, with lots of requests to do another one in the fall…maybe? Stay tuned:)

A big welcome to our newest Board member, Andrea Leven-Marcon, ACC, CEC, MA. Andrea will be our Community Outreach Director, leading International Coaching Week and pro bono coaching programs. Thank you Andrea for your commitment to support and lead our ICF community.

We also extend a warm welcome to our 24 newest members. We are so excited you have joined our thriving community! Our chapter continues to grow - up 13% over last year. We have over 1,000 members who have renewed their ICF Global membership and chosen ICF Toronto. If the annual ICF Global renewal date slipped past you, please go to ICF Global and renew today. 

Our programming is paused for summer, however the learning never stops! Our ACMP (Association of Change Management Professionals) Ontario/Global partner is hosting a free webinar, "Leading Teams in Times of Relocation: A Perspective from Ukraine and Around the Region". The webinar will explore changes and challenges affecting employees facing relocation. How can leaders strive to make these changes as painless as possible?  This webinar is free of charge, and you can register here: https://www.acmpglobal.org/events/eventdetails.aspx?id=1656554.

ICF Global has released its Chapter Diversity Guide. The Guide recognizes ideas from our very own DEI committee and has positioned ICF Toronto as an early leader in this important work - and we have a long way to go. Over the summer, the Board will engage in self-learning on DEI with the guidance of our Board leads, Lisa MacVicar and Terri Donohue. 

ICF Toronto is a vibrant chapter because of YOU. We appreciate your contributions, engagement and feedback. Please reach out to alicia@icftoronto.com or feel free to contact any of our Board members.

Enjoy your summer!

Code Red Opportunities

By Josie McLean

“Recently I was asked to present a keynote at the Public Libraries SA Conference on the hot topic of the climate crisis. This is a topic that has the potential to be depressing and disheartening, and I wanted to be invited to talk again, so I didn’t want to send the entire audience into therapy. Perhaps you’ve found yourself in a similar position in trying to discuss these things within your own community? Read more....
