about this item
Rewire: A Radical Approach to Tackling Diversity and Difference tackles the issue of equality, diversity and inclusion, in a fresh and radical way. It critiques current thinking and practice that is responsible for slow progress in this area and provides readers with a new, holistic and tactical perspective that leverages what we know about mind-set and change.The issue of difference sits at the core of many of the world's crises. Large corporations are a microcosm of the globalized world we live in, and hold significant power in shaping our lives and ideas. Despite decades of work in the area, little progress has been made because current approaches focus on specific contexts, short-term results and commercial return rather than taking into account what we know about human behaviour and addressing culture.Here, the authors, who have worked in a number of leading organizations, including Caterpillar, American Express, HSBC and the NHS, put forward a new approach, based on years of experience of what works in individual and organizational change. They present:· A causal map, which describes a wide range of social, biological, psychological, evolutionary and organisational factors at play· A unique step-by-step approach, to create mind-set change at the individual, organizational and social levelThis book offers corporate executives and social leaders a fresh perspective, along with the tools and confidence to create more inclusive and effective environments in a simple and practical way, byrewiring the fundamental psychological processes and patterns that lie at the heart of it.
