Publisher's Summary

The nation has transformed. The calls for racial equity are loud and insistent and they are now being listened to. And yet, companies across the country are still far behind when it comes to equity in the workplace. For decades, we've heard variations on the same theme on how to increase diversity and inclusion and we have still not moved. If we want equity to matter inside and outside the workplace, if we want to be real allies for change, then we need a new approach. We need to stop following trends. We need to lead change.

In Authentic Diversity, culture change expert and diversity speaker Michelle Silverthorn explains how to transform diversity and inclusion from mere lip service into the very heart of leadership. Following the journey of a Black woman in the workplace, leaders learn the old rules of diversity that keep failing her and millions like her again and again, and the new rules they must put in place to make success a reality for everyone. A millennial, immigrant, and Black woman in America, Michelle will show you how to lead a space centered on equity, allyship, and inclusion and how together we can build a new organization, and nation, centered on justice.

I needed this and am now better equipped

I'm an Asian American cis male middle manager who has benefitted from being white-adjacent and has only just begun his reckoning and relationship with social justice. I am passionate about my workplace culture and have had the privilege of being a part of shaping it years ago. This book served as a fresh take on diversity programs. Something about industry norms on diversity programs didn't sit well with me and Michelle and Janina helped put words to those feelings. After finishing the book, I feel much better equipped to engage with relentlessly improving how I work with my colleagues, how I interview, and how we re-articulate what matters to us.
