Summary

"We are in the midst of a global reckoning on racism, and corporations are on high alert. Public statements of anti-racism are no longer enough. But managers, especially those sandwiched between the C-Suite and their entry-level colleagues, feel that they don't have the power and influence to affect the level of change we need to see in the world. In Inclusion Revolution, award-winning diversity advocate Daisy Auger-Domínguez shows that this is simply not true: we can all take action in our organizations today. By sharing the best practices honed through years of working as a leading executive in diversity at Google, Disney, and Vice, Auger-Domínguez delivers clear-cut strategies on achieving workplace equity. She examines how companies can find diverse talent, how to confront a problematic referral culture, and how to restructure interviews and the hiring process to eliminate bias. Instead of encouraging mentoring, she shows how training sponsors on effectively and sensitively supporting colleagues can go farther in shoring up retention. She exposes how one-day diversity trainings and even affinity groups can become counterproductive, if structured incorrectly. And she shows how executive-level diversity councils and even external diversity boards can more effectively enact policy changes and hold companies accountable. Through her guidance and through examples from companies that are doing the work well-to dramatic and lasting results-Auger-Domínguez shows readers how to hire, retain, and grow diverse talent and build a truly inclusive workplace. Inclusion Revolution is not a blueprint for check-the-box diversity trainings; it's not a prescription to being politically correct in the workplace. This is a book of action for those who are willing to realize equity in their organizations and confront the pervasive inequities at work. It's a book about building change that lasts, because through the best teams, and the broadest audience reach, companies can finally build a stronger future"--
