A practical roadmap to building a diverse and inclusive work culture

In Diversity Intelligence: How to Create a Culture of Inclusion for your Business, keynote speaker and diversity and inclusion expert Heidi R. Andersen delivers a step-by-step walkthrough of how to create an inclusive culture, and break down the barriers to achieving diversity.

You'll find practical advice for creating the necessary cultural transformation that results in diversity intelligence, reaching well beneath the surface until it's embedded in the foundation of your organization. The author describes the tools, methods, concepts, and goals that are essential to this transformation.

In this important book, you'll also:

* Explore case studies of companies who successfully managed to implement diversity, inclusion, and sustainable governance initiatives
* Discover why so many diversity and inclusion programs fail despite the best of managerial intentions
