Diversity, the New Workplace & the Will to Change
This is not simply a book. It’s a call to action.
A call to embrace diversity—of race, orientation, thought, approach, and experience.
A call to be energized by equality.
A call to rise up and champion a more inclusive workplace and company culture.
No matter what your role—an executive, a manager, a business owner, or someone just getting started professionally—you have the power to drive change and influence organizations. Jennifer Brown’s new book, Inclusion: Diversity, the New Workplace & the Will to Change, gives you the tools to do exactly that.
The tricky part? We will only succeed in this transformation if those in leadership collectively pivot from command-and-control management styles to reinvent how we look at every organization’s greatest asset: people.
The exciting part? There’s no better time than now. And when we build systems that embrace diversity in all its forms—we directly impact the bottom line. Simply put: harnessing the power of diversity and inclusion is essential for the very viability and sustainability of every organization.
The unexpected part? When you start to actively make space for diverse voices, stories, and truths, you start discovering your own voice, story, and truth on deeper, and more powerful levels. (Yes, it is indeed the gift that keeps on giving.)
Inclusion imparts critical knowledge, cutting-edge data, and time-tested strategies that Jennifer and her team have implemented at Fortune 500 companies around the country. These strategies will allow you to empower members of your entire organization to utilize all of their talents and potential to drive positive change and the future of work.
It’s time to go beyond hopeful ideals and into change-inducing action. Because when people feel welcomed, valued, respected, and heard by their colleagues and organizations, incredible things happen.
And who doesn’t want to be a part of something incredible?
