Helping women become anti-racist in their lives and businesses
Anti-racism coaching is more than just being a better ally, it’s about creating a lasting impact. As a business owner and a service provider, you have so many opportunities to make an impact on this movement.
On a personal level you can have those difficult conversations with the people around you, work on your own underlying prejudices and process the emotions and insecurities that are keeping you stuck.
With your business you can use your influence to lead other people to start paying attention to these issues, create a welcoming and safe space for a diverse group of people. You can even create new business practices that open you up to a wider audience that wants what you have to offer, there just may be an invisible wall you don’t know about.
The Anti-Racism Coaching Program is a 6 month program (depending on how far along in your journey you are) that will teach you how to make an impact.
IT'S BROKEN DOWN INTO 3 SECTIONS:
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
1:1 coaching might be for you if...
You’re feeling some shame/guilt about the social justice movement because you care and feel like you may have been contributing to the problem.
You realize that your client roster is extremely white and you want more diversity, but you don’t know how to attract a diverse audience.
You really want to do something to support the Black Lives Matter movement, but you don’t know what that looks like and you’re anxious to do SOMETHING.
“Let’s shift from taking an action to making an impact.”
The coaching program is 6 months long with weekly calls. Every week you'll have a 60-minute session to work through whatever challenge you're facing. This personalized time allows you to dig deep so you can make lasting change.
Unlimited voice and text support via Voxer. This work isn't easy. When you're taking action steps during the week, you may run into some challenges. For that reason, you'll have unlimited support via the Voxer app or email. When you're going through something rough, you don't have to do it alone.
Monique Melton’s Racist Habits course. Monique Melton is an anti-racism educator and has created a 90-minute course to help jumpstart your anti-racism journey. Before your first coaching session you'll be sent this course so you won't be clueless when the real work begins.

Frequently Asked Questions
How will this help me in my business?
What exactly will you teach me in your program?
You are going to learn SO MUCH in this program. Not just about society, but about yourself as well. By incorporating Monique Melton’s Racist Habits course, I make sure that you’re getting educated by one of the best voices in the field. During our coaching work together I’ll be teaching you the most effective communication practices for talking to people about racism. You’ll also be learning about how to deeply help your clients on issues such as racism and sexism without spiritual bypassing (which is unfortunately how a lot of us have been taught). That’s honestly just scratching the surface.
What can I expect with us working together?
Expect to do some deep work. Expect to do some critical thinking (don’t turn away now, you’re way smarter than you think). Expect to make some changes to your life and business. It may be a little uncomfortable, but that’s what you have me for.
We signed up for 12 1-on-1 calls and immediately I started with the anti-racism crash course and a strengths test, which immediately helped me understand where I was getting stuck and where I can grow! I am able to calmly and collectively discuss racism with people of opposing viewpoints without getting blinding mad. I've created scripts and helpful plans for situations that I often encounter, so I can be the most effective communicator, and not have to leave the conversation when I get too mad. This is huge growth for me! And finally, we work together to solve challenging problems, such as discussing how to create more inclusive cycling team and cycling community, or tackling the tough discussions around transgender rights.
I've grown so much! I'm grateful that through the consistent work together, I'm able to get better at crafting my messaging, I've attracted a more diverse clientele than ever before! I'm able to adequately state that my values are my business values and I am forever working hard towards an anti-racist society and breaking down the systems of white supremacy and patriarchy. With Alyssa's guidance, I've been able to have tough conversations with people in my community, and prepare to have more hard conversations in the future feeling well equipped with how to handle the talks.
I feel grateful, thrilled, and amazed to be working with Alyssa Hall Coaching, she has helped me transform into someone who can effect change! Now, I have an growing toolkit of skills to address racism, transgender rights, equality, diversity, and feel competent doing so! I'm managing to channel away from my anger-as-default and into much more constructive discussions, helping to influence others as much as I can.
I'm grateful for my new skill development, especially when other BIPOC in the cycling community have publicly addressed me in gratitude for stepping into allyship. I"m thrilled because I know in my core I'm affecting a small bit of change, doing the right thing because it is RIGHT, and now I have tools to bring about change!
I'm also thrilled that I've been able to start attracting a more diverse client base. I recently gained my first trans client and connected with a Black woman cyclist who is eagerly starting a BIPOC women's cycling team! I wanted to serve more diverse clients and bring more women of color into cycling, but had NO clue how to start. I'm so excited for the future!
