In the Arena with Iacob Bacian - Equity

In the Arena with Iacob Bacian - Equity

September 21, 2022

Many of us feel committed to having more equitable relationships, teams or organisations and communities - but don’t know where to start, how we are doing it well and we sometimes underestimate the emotional labour of living and working in this way. 

 

In this episode we were delighted to invite Iacob Bacian ‘In The Arena’ to talk about his journey in working, coaching and connecting in more equitable ways - the hope he sees and some of the challenges involved. 

 

Iacob (He/Him) started his career as a graphic designer, trained in service design and worked on projects focused on improving public services. Iacob later trained as a coach and has focused his practice on developing a coaching practice where people experience equal and empowering relationships, especially when they have experienced deeply oppressive systems and relationships before.

 

Iacob gave us some great WRAP recommendations for you to delve deeper: 

  1. Watch: Disclosure - Documentary on trans representation in the media
  2. Read: Huddlecraft newsletter  - A CIC galvanizing the power of peer-to-peer learning.
  3. Audio: Poetry Unbound - A respite from the work, words to encompass the immensity, the grief, the grind, the joy.
  4. Ponder: Who can you do this work together with?

And if you want to learn more about the work of Civil Rights Activist John Lewis and getting in good trouble this video clip gives you some headlines and from here you can delve deeper.

You can connect with Iacob in the following ways:

In the Arena with Kamal Ibrahim - Adapting

August 31, 2022

While Claire is on sabbatical, join our guest host Kirsty Elderton as she listens to Kamal Ibrahim's experience in the arena.

Kamal Ibrahim migrated from Ethiopia with his family in 2003 at theage of 12 to escape civil war.-At that time, Kamal spoke no English and experienced all of the challenges that accompany settling into a new country,community and culture.

Kamal turned his passion for soccer into a way of communicating and connecting into his new environment. Kamal first  played at his local club, progressed through the leagues and went on to play professional soccer, made appearances in the Socceroos - the Australian men’s football team.

Kamal has since combined his love of soccer and his experiences of moving countries into a not for profit program called One Ball–that supports children and young people with their physical and mental health through sport.

Kamal will be sharing the highs and lows of his journey and how being adaptable has served him well, the importance of this quality for our young people and how he integrates transformational coaching conversations into his work as a soccer coach.
