Indy Batth holds a master of arts in education and is an ICF-certified leadership coach (PCC) trained in executive, neuroscience and team/systems coaching. She is also a group facilitator with over 25 years of expertise, committed to inclusive leadership, building equitable teams and socially just organizations. She takes an anti-racist, anti-oppressive systems approach as a coach and facilitator. This is informed by her lived experience as a racialized woman, along with graduate work focused on anti-racist, feminist theory and health and wellbeing.
Indy's work focuses on personal and systemic culture shift. She designs and facilitates learning that addresses the influence of intersecting social identities (race, gender, class, sexuality, …) and the systems and structures within which these lived experiences take place. In her grounded, measured approach, she strives to hold space for both the personal and the systemic work in order to build equitable workplace cultures; she takes a stand for the integration of both as the most powerful way to create and sustain organizational transformation and culture shift.
A passion for ongoing learning guides the continuous evolution of her work, in response to the changing social needs of individuals and organizations. Indy has training in Deep Diversity®, the psychology of conflict, trauma-informed somatic experiencing, mindfulness and wellbeing. She is certified to administer Emotional Intelligence (EQi-2.0), Power Intelligence® (DPI) and strengths (Clifton Strengths) assessments.
Indy identifies as a racialized, immigrant settler living in Vancouver, the traditional territories of the Coast Salish First Nations People. She is the director of ikb Coaching & Consulting.
