DEIJ Statement
The ICF Global Board of Directors approved the ICF Statement of Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging and Justice in July 2020. Staff and volunteer leaders from ICF’s six family organizations subsequently co-signed the statement. This statement of principles reflects a position we invite every ICF Member, Credential-holder and accredited provider to subscribe to.

ICF Members and Credential-holders live and work in more than 140 countries and territories. ICF is a vibrant global community committed to the shared vision of making coaching an integral part of a thriving society. Our mission is to lead the global advancement of coaching. To do this, we must reflect on our blind spots and be aware of opportunities for improvement. We cannot ignore the challenges that many coaches and coaching clients face due to systemic problems in their communities.

As members of the ICF community, we ascribe to the core values of integrity, excellence, collaboration and respect. The foundation of these values is a shared commitment to diversity, inclusion, belonging and justice.

We will place diversity, inclusion, belonging and justice at the forefront of every decision we make within our Association. As we continue the journey toward our vision, we will recommit ourselves to valuing the unique talents, insights and experiences that every coach and client brings to the world.

Non-Discrimination Policy
It is the policy of Northpoint that:

  • Recruitment and hiring of all personnel is conducted without discrimination against any individual with regard to race, age, religion, colour, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, disability, or veteran status.
  • All staff and personnel will not discriminate against any employee or participant because of race, age, religion, colour, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, disability, or veteran status.
  • All individuals are welcome to participate regardless of race, age, religion, colour, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, disability, or veteran status.
  • All employees, students, and other participants should be able to enjoy an environment free of discrimination and harassment. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination or harassment in the areas of race, age, religion, colour, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, disability, or veteran status.

Northpoint does not and will not tolerate conduct by any employee, student, volunteer, contractor, visitor, or vendor which unreasonably interferes with an individual’s ability to learn in a welcoming environment.

Participants who wish to report discrimination are encouraged to follow the Grievance Policy and Northpoint will promptly investigate all claims and reports of inappropriate conduct.

 

Grievance Policy

The objective of our Grievance Policy is to ensure that students can freely present grievances and that Northpoint can respond to and resolve those grievances in a fair and just manner. Grievances can include alleged discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability, alleged staff violation of the code of ethics, or other problems arising in the relationship between a participant and a staff member or policies of Northpoint.

Our procedures

1. Informal resolution

As we are training people to become coaches, we will first attempt an informal resolution between the parties involved. We aim at resolving the issue as soon as possible and the person who is alleged to have caused the grievance is asked to respond promptly, if possible before the next official meeting (as a mentor or in class)

2. Review

If the person who presents the grievance is not content with the result of the informal resolution, they are asked to present the issue to the Program Director who will ask for a meeting of the involved parties to come to an equitable resolution.
