Diverse, inclusive organizations have a distinct business advantage over other organizations. They innovate faster, outperform other companies, and even produce higher financial returns. Workforce diversity, as a business strategy, drives success and can transform a company.
But inclusive diversity is difficult to attain, and honestly, about more than just economic benefit. People are looking for guidance on how to do this vital work. Companies that want greater diversity inevitably find that they come up against culture and obstacles they are ill-equipped to handle. When the way we've done business no longer represents the kinds of organizations we want to be, how do we step out of our old models and mindsets?
This book is for anyone who wants change in the workplace and knows their companies could do more and be more. It's for business leaders, hiring managers, human resources, all those within an organization who believe things can be done differently.
‚ÄčIn this book, Dr. Adams lays out clear, actionable steps readers can take to develop sustainably diverse and inclusive workplaces. As an organizational psychologist who's been helping companies create measurable change for over 20 years, she offers tangible solutions to complex issues that will enable companies to walk a new path of diversity and inclusion, heightening their performance and success.
