Beyond Diversity: 12 Non-Obvious Ways to Build a More Inclusive World (Paperback)
Wall Street Journal Bestseller
"A useful, forcefully written, and wide-ranging study of inequities--and how to fix them." --Kirkus Reviews
What if we could go beyond the conversation about diversity and take real action?
In early 2021, more than two hundred widely respected experts gathered virtually for the world's most ambitious conversation about diversity. Our aim was to do more than spotlight injustice. We challenged ourselves to imagine how to fix it. The dialogue brought together casting directors, bookstore owners, disabled leaders, healthcare professionals, students, VCs, standup comedians, chief diversity officers, pro gamers, archaeologists, government insiders, startup founders, and even a master puppeteer.
Now for the first time, these solutions are compiled into one groundbreaking volume organized into twelve powerful themes including: storytelling, technology, identity, retail, education and more. Each chapter paints a revealing picture of the world, how it is, how it could be and what needs to happen for us to get there. For newcomers to the topic of diversity, and DEI experts alike, this book offers a much-needed actionable blueprint for creating a more inclusive world for us all.
