Debjani Biswas

How shall we leverage the power of inclusive coaching, to bridge chasms in an increasingly divided world? This relevant and powerful question hinges upon two aspects: increasing inclusion while decreasing exclusion. When we layer ICF Core Coaching Competencies into this framework, we have a powerful practical toolkit for professional success and personal wellbeing. 

In this year’s Celebrate Coaching keynote, internationally bestselling author, two time TEDx and popular global speaker Debjani Biswas will showcase her original B.R.I.D.G.E. framework so we can Build and Reinforce Inclusion (B.R.I.) while we Destroy the Guardrails of Exclusion (D.G.E.). This is the cornerstone of her fourth book (publication date TBD) on the topic of inclusive leadership. Biswas’ internationally bestselling books include: ‘Miserably Successful No More’, ‘#UsToo: Bridging the Global Gender Gap’ and ‘Unleash the Power of Diversity’. Her original frameworks are used in 23 countries.

This keynote is in the form of a ‘homecoming’ for Ms. Biswas. She completed her Executive and Career Coaching Certification from the University of Texas at Dallas, is an International Coach Federation certified PCC, and has served on the Board of Directors of ICF North Texas. Ms. Biswas also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering from IIT Madras, an MBA in Marketing from IIM Bangalore, an MS in Organizational Strategy from UT Dallas and is a certified EQi practitioner. 

She has spoken at a veritable Who’s Who of corporations and conferences: Chevron, National Summit for Educational Equity, Texas Instruments, NSELA, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Ericsson, NCTC, APEGA (Canada) ICF Global (London), UTD, UNH, HMS... and many more. Debjani Biswas’ two TEDx talks: ‘But you don’t look like an engineer!’ and Common Ground on Gender Bias. have each generated over a million views. Biswas is also featured regularly in the media for her expertise in inclusive leadership (Dallas Morning News, ESPN, iHeart Radio, CBS, etc.)
Ms. Biswas was recognized as one of the ‘Top 10 Influential Women Leaders of 2021’, and, in 2022 with the USICOC ‘Women Helping Women’ Award. She has also received the ACT Award for Journalism ‘Diversity beyond Boundaries’ - in 2017, and is an NAPW Woman of the Year. Currently the CEO of Coachieve, LLC Biswas has 20 years of prior executive and corporate experience (Tata Administrative Services, Texas Instruments, and PepsiCo).

UT Southwestern Medical Center


UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas will provide a panel discussion about their efforts to build an internal coaching program for their faculty physicians.

Faculty physicians working in an academic medical environment are typically drawn to the noble mission of “Educate, Discover, and Heal.” But academic medicine also comes with challenges such as balancing competing professional demands, balancing work and home life, battling burnout, and doing it all for less money than counterparts in private practice. 

UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) in Dallas is no stranger to these challenges, yet they see a potential opportunity to contribute to improvement through coaching. Over the past 3 years, UTSW has been developing an internal coaching program designed as the foundation of a coaching culture. 

During this panel discussion, you’ll hear:

  • the unique challenges in Academic Medicine that led UTSW to choose coaching as the solution
  • the operational details of the UTSW Coach Certificate Program (ICF Level One Accreditation pending)
  • how UTSW supports a distributed model of internal coach support
  • where UTSW is deploying their trained internal coaches across the institution, including our Medical School, the School of Health Professions, and elsewhere
