Diversity, Inc.: The Failed Promise of a Billion-Dollar Business
One of Time Magazine's Must-Read Books of 2019
An award-winning journalist shows how work place diversity initiatives have turned into a profoundly misguided industry--and have done little to bring equality to America's major industries and institutions.
In Diversity, Inc., award-winning journalist Pamela Newkirk shines a bright light on the diversity industry, asking the tough questions about what has been effective--and why progress has been so slow. Newkirk highlights the rare success stories, sharing valuable lessons about how other industries can match those gains. But as she argues, despite decades of handwringing, costly initiatives, and uncomfortable conversations, organizations have, apart from a few exceptions, fallen far short of their goals.
