Concrete strategies to call out wrongdoing at home, at work, at school, and elsewhere

In Say More About That, veteran inclusion strategist, coach, writer, and speaker Amber Cabral delivers an incisive and practical guide to assertively addressing inequitable treatment you see at home, work, school, and other settings. The book offers a complete communications toolkit for equity advocacy you can deploy on your own behalf and on behalf of others.

You'll get the tactics, context, and tools that make being brave and speaking up a lot easier. You'll also find:
* A thorough discussion of the fundamentals of inclusion and equity, including concepts of advocacy and allyship, privilege, and identity
* An examination of the social landscape that makes speaking up so daunting
* Explorations of the most effective language and tactics you can use when you make a stand for yourself or others

The perfect resource for underrepresented professionals, allies, advocates, and people seeking to make a positive difference in the world, Say More About That is the assertiveness manual you need if you've been meaning to speak up but are worried about being drowned out.
