Book Synopsis

Discover what business visionaries on the frontiers of diverse and equitable hiring are doing to drive change in their organizations

In Innovating for Diversity: Lessons from Top Companies That are Disrupting Old Practices to Achieve Inclusivity, Equity and Business Success, renowned Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and tech specialists Bertina Ceccarelli and Susanne Tedrick reframe the DEI discussion and move it beyond a human resources issue. While it's well established that diverse teams help to advance innovation, the authors explain how principles of innovation can be applied to building highly effective and sustainable diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) practices embraced by executives across an organization.

You'll be inspired by leaders at top companies who identified root causes of limited DEI progress and created smart, bold solutions for increasing representation, developing future talent, and advancing the careers of people often overlooked.

In the book, you'll also find:

  • Introductions to the people and companies who have innovated their approaches to diverse hiring, retention, and advancement, and enjoyed pronounced impact on their bottom lines
  • Profiles of committed leaders driving the change towards a more diverse and inclusive workforce
  • Strategies for breaking down the cultural and organizational barriers in companies that remain in place and prevent transformative change

A critical resource for senior-level business professionals, managers, and executives, Innovating for Diversity will also prove to be invaluable for people seeking to build their careers from the ground up.

Praise for Innovating for Diversity

"DEI is top of mind for virtually all executives regardless of the sector that they are leading in. This book highlights the key principles that are critical to success in any change effort: courage, leadership, collaboration, and trust. With compelling and detailed case studies, readers will learn how to put these principles into action."
--Jane Wei-Skillern, Senior Fellow, Center for Social Sector Leadership, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business

"The ultimate reward for truly innovating to form more diverse teams is a culture of belonging, which is absolutely necessary for any company that wants dazzling performance. I was excited and inspired by the case studies that show how great leaders are shifting from just a compliance view of DE&I to building teams where everyone is motivated to be exponential."
--Earl Newsome, Vice President & Chief Information Officer, Cummins and Co- Founder, TechPACT

"This timely, inspiring book holds a mirror to the business world, lifting the lid on poorly implemented DEI strategies and showing the pitfalls before guiding the way to success through examples, hard data and fresh ideas. The result is a powerful case for the courage and humility to lean into our humanity so we can reap the full benefits of more genuinely diverse, kinder, safer, more creative and more exciting workplaces."
--Peter Mousaferiadis, Founder and CEO, Cultural Infusions
