Did That Just Happen?!: Beyond “Diversity”—Creating Sustainable and Inclusive Organizations
|Authors: ||Pinder-Amaker, Stephanie|
|Publisher: ||Beacon Press|
Synopsis: An accessible, user-friendly guide showing all people how to create and sustain diversity and inclusivity in the workplace - no matter your identity, industry, or level of experience
We know that diverse teams are stronger, smarter and more profitable--and many companies are attempting to hire more diverse teams, but most struggle to create a real culture of inclusivity where people from all backgrounds feel comfortable. As clinical psychologists, as well as individuals with marginalized identities, Dr. Pinder-Amaker and Dr. Wadsworth present specific, tangible, and learnable skills for maintaining diversity and creating lasting inclusivity in the workplace.
The authors explain that employees with marginalized identities often shoulder additional and invisible burdens which can lead to conflict and burnout. They highlight the emotional and physical impact of marginalization and how that leads to a decrease in employee engagement and often job turnover.
Offering real-life accounts that illustrate common workplace occurrences, and answers to questions like, "How do I handle diversity landmines at work?" and, "What can I do when I've made a mistake?" the authors break downs ways that organizations can improve their cultural competence and become more equitable. This guide will be invaluable both for employees who come from underrepresented communities and identities, as well as for leaders of companies, supervisors, HR departments, and for those who want to understand and support diversity/equity/inclusion practices.
