All are welcome : how to build a real workplace culture of inclusion that delivers results

Owyoung, Cynthia, author.
2022

"Seize the competitive edge and increase innovation-while doing right by people-with a strong culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging Studies prove that companies with more diversity in their ranks are more innovative, expand their markets, and perform better financially. Why, then, has so little progress been made, especially when it comes to corporate leadership? Because most companies have yet to develop and implement effective diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) initiatives. And the ones that have too often focus mainly on hiring a diversity of staff or rolling out unconscious bias training without improving results. DEIB expert Cynthia Owyoung has spent more than two decades working in this space. She's seen it all, and she knows what works-and what doesn't. In All Are Welcome, Owyoung explains what DEIB is and why it matters, and she delivers the information and insights you need to make DEIB a key element of your company culture. You'll learn how to: Break old habits that keep DEIB efforts from moving forward Retain talent from underrepresented groups Conduct an audit of the state of DEIB at your company today Engage and excite leaders and managers around DEIB efforts Weave DEIB into all your talent pool management methods Uplevel employee resource groups to effectively support business goals Measure your progress with qualitative and quantitative data Connect your DEIB efforts to driving better business results DEIB begins but doesn't end with hiring. When you deeply understand all the nuances of diversity, equity, inclusiveness, and belonging, you'll be able to put them all together for a better, more productive, and happier workplace. With All Are Welcome, you have everything you need to build a workforce and a company designed to compete in the twenty-first century while doing your part to make the world a better place to live-and work"-- Provided by publisher.

The conversation : how seeking and speaking the truth about racism can radically transform individuals and organizations : a science-based approach

The conversation : how seeking and speaking the truth about racism can radically transform individuals and organizations : a science-based approach

Livingston, Robert W., author.
2021

"An essential tool for individuals, organizations, and communities of all sizes to jump-start dialogue on racism and bias and to transform well-intentioned statements on diversity into concrete actions-from a leading Harvard social psychologist. How can I become part of the solution? In the wake of the social unrest of 2020 and growing calls for racial justice, many business leaders and ordinary citizens are asking that very question. This book provides a compass for all those seeking to begin the work of anti-racism. In The Conversation, Robert Livingston addresses three simple but profound questions: What is racism? Why should everyone be more concerned about it? What can we do to eradicate it? For some, the existence of systemic racism against Black people is hard to accept because it violates the notion that the world is fair and just. But the rigid racial hierarchy created by slavery did not collapse after it was abolished, nor did it end with the civil rights era. Whether it's the composition of a company's leadership team or the composition of one's neighborhood, these racial divides and disparities continue to show up in every facet of society. For Livingston, the difference between a solvable problem and a solved problem is knowledge, investment, and determination. And the goal of making organizations more diverse, equitable, and inclusive is within our capability. Livingston's lifework is showing people how to turn difficult conversations about race into productive instances of real change. For decades he has translated science into practice for numerous organizations, including Airbnb, Deloitte, Microsoft, Under Armour, L'Oreal, and JPMorgan Chase. In The Conversation, Livingston distills this knowledge and experience into an eye-opening immersion in the science of racism and bias. Drawing on examples from pop culture and his own life experience, Livingston, with clarity and wit, explores the root causes of racism, the factors that explain why some people care about it and others do not, and the most promising paths toward profound and sustainable progress, all while inviting readers to challenge their assumptions. Social change requires social exchange. Founded on principles of psychology, sociology, management, and behavioral economics, The Conversation is a road map for uprooting entrenched biases and sharing candid, fact-based perspectives on race that will lead to increased awareness, empathy, and action"-- Provided by publisher.

The leader's guide to unconscious bias : how to reframe bias, cultivate connection, and create high-performing teams

Fuller, Pamela, 1984- author
2020

"Unconscious bias affects everyone. It can look like the disappointment of an HR professional when a candidate for a new position asks about maternity leave. It can look like preferring the application of an Ivy League graduate over one from a state school. It can look like assuming a man is more entitled to speak in a meeting than his female junior colleague. Meant for every manager who wants to understand and move past their own preconceived ideas, this book explains that bias is the result of mental shortcuts and our likes and dislikes, and is a natural part of the human condition. And what we assume about each other and how we interact with one another has vast effects on our organizational success, especially in the workplace. Teaching you how to overcome unconscious bias, this book provides more than thirty unique tools, such as a prep worksheet and a list of ways to reframe your unconscious thoughts."-- provided by publisher.

Overcoming hate through dialogue : confronting prejudice, racism, and bigotry with conversation-- and coffee

Overcoming hate through dialogue : confronting prejudice, racism, and bigotry with conversation-- and coffee

Cekic, Özlem, author.
2020

When Özlem Cekic became the first Muslim MP in the Danish Parliament, her email inbox was inundated with hate mail and threats. Her gut reaction was to delete and ignore each abusive message. But when a neo-Nazi threatened her, she chose a different approach: she started replying and inviting each sender to meet and engage in dialogue over coffee. She met people like Kim, a right-wing extremist and fervent Islamophobe. She met armed Muslim adolescents on Norrebro's Red Square, whose contempt for Danish peoples ran deep. She visited a mosque where the imam preached against democracy, and a church where the priest spoke against homosexuality. And, along the way, she confronted her own history of prejudice. With time, understanding, and patience, Özlem began to make a difference in both the lives of those who hated her before even meeting her -- and in her own.

Unbias : addressing unconscious bias at work

Unbias : addressing unconscious bias at work

Gordon, Stacey A., author
2021

"Unconscious Bias at Work will help readers to understand diversity, equity, and inclusion concepts and identify them in the workplace to understand where the bias lies within the workplace and provide readers with tools to actively remove barriers. We've defined the concepts; we've talked about what diversity is, what inclusion is, and how the concepts relate to the workplace. We've told everyone why diversity matters, why inclusion matters, and explained with charts, graphs, and statistics about returnon investment and the business case for inclusion. But we are beyond talk and data. It's time for action. We need to provide tools to make these concepts actionable. The number one question Gordon receives from prospective clients is "how"? How do they handle the conversation? How do they authentically discuss race when they've never had to previously? What can they do to be more inclusive? How do they help their employee resource groups (ERGs) without overburdening them with the extra work? Unconscious Bias at Work will answer these questions."-- Provided by publisher.
