ICW 2021: DEFYING CHALLENGING TIMES

During a time when many individuals across the world were seeking connection and support, International Coaching Week (ICW) 2021 was able to bring people together in a way like never before.  

We know that professional coaching has the power to transform individuals, organizations and the world at large. That’s why International Coaching Federation (ICF) is committed to making coaching an integral part of a thriving society, and we know that a key to accomplish this is to make coaching more accessible to people across the world.  

Recognizing the pressing need for virtual connection this year, we launched an innovative event platform for ICW 2021. It was a huge success!  

With wider virtual accessibility, we saw more global participation than ever before. Through the event platform alone, 41,000 individuals from 138 countries participated in more than 1,200 events, which were presented by ICF Members and Chapters.  

Thank you to all who joined us to make this year’s ICW such a success! If you didn’t have the opportunity, you can access recordings from a number of events by clicking the button below.
