Biography

As a Korean-American woman executive in Silicon Valley, Beatrice Kim has seen first-hand the power that a diverse and inclusive culture can bring to a company and the devastating consequences for companies without one.

As witness to this power along with her desire to educate, empower, and wake people up to their full potential, Bea co-founded Awaken, a leading provider of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion education programs that go beyond just "checking the box.”

When she isn't advising Awaken, Bea is living her life purpose by inspiring others to live big and unapologetically through her life coaching practice. She primarily serves founders, high potential leaders, and executives, but also helps larger companies like Google and PG&E.

Bea also pursues her passion in helping the next generation of women leaders as a group coach for the Stanford Graduate School of Business, facilitating deep conversation for the Women in Management program.

Bea is an angel investor and her portfolio includes startups in the financial, technology and media space. She has her bachelor's from Stanford University and coaching certification accredited through the International Coaching Federation. In her spare time, Bea loves watching detective TV shows and camping with her husband and two children.

Are you causing unintentional harm to your clients from marginalized communities? 

As coaches, we have the potential to create life-changing transformation for our clients and companies. 

And we also have the power to create devastating harm. It is crucial now more than ever to expand our consciousness to the larger systems and societal factors that impact ourselves and our clients. 

In this session, we take a look at our own personal history, external narrative, and systemic/institutional factors to examine how they impact our work with clients. 

These factors can invalidate a client's real and lived experiences and can sound like "I don't see color/race" or even something well-intentioned like "Your biggest obstacle is within you.” Society's overall social consciousness is rising, it is our role as coaches to lead the way. And we must start with us. 

If you are looking to raise your social consciousness, to get a bit uncomfortable in understanding and uncovering your own biases, and willing and open to do better in order to first, do no harm to clients, then this session is for you.

  1. Learn why having awareness around diversity, equity, inclusion is critical to your coaching practice
  2. Identify ways to support your clients from marginalized communities
  3. Review strategies to reduce bias and harm
