Book of Interest—Diversity Beyond Lip Service

How do you do inclusion?

If you are someone who shies away from conversations about Diversity because they often seem to present as a laundry list of grievances and demands, please know that this book is the antidote for that. This author has a long, successful history as a global leadership development coach. Her work is based on the latest research and best practices for creating sustainable behavioral change. Rather than focusing on compliance, she seeks the ways in which people can embrace inclusion based on their core values. She is opening the door to a dialogue that faces issues of marginalization, privilege, resistance, and microaggression head on, acknowledges the fears that seek to maintain the status quo, and talks about what real inclusion looks like and how it can be achieved.

The book contains plenty of examples of what works and what doesn’t work. It makes the case that diversity is the future and that inclusion is good business practice. It demonstrates how those in power can benefit by creating platforms to share their power in healthy ways. It’s not a win/win model. It’s a face-your-fears, move-beyond-your-discomfort, and win model.

Millenials are already living in a diverse world. Businesses that wish to continue to serve them need to create an environment that mirrors their lifestyle. This is the how-to that tells those businesses how to do that. SHOP FOR THE BOOK
