Publisher's Summary

A sweeping leadership framework to institute clear and intentional actions throughout your organization so that people of all racial backgrounds are empowered to lead, collaborate, and excel at work.

The Diversity Gap is a fearless, groundbreaking guide to help leaders at every level shatter the barriers that are causing diversity efforts to fail. 

Combining real-world research with honest first-person experiences, racial justice facilitator Bethaney Wilkinson provides leaders a replicable structure to foster a diverse culture of belonging within your organization. 

With illuminating and challenging insights throughout, you will:

  • Better understand today’s racial climate and its negative impact on your organization and team
  • Be equipped to shift your organizational culture from one that has good intentions for “diversity” to one that addresses systemic barriers to all employees thriving at work
  • Be emboldened to participate in creating an organizational culture where people from various racial backgrounds are growing in their purpose, making their highest contributions, and collaborating effectively toward greater impact at work and in the world

Ultimately, The Diversity Gap is the quantum shift between well-intentioned organizational diversity programs that do little to move the needle and a lasting culture of equity and belonging that can transform your organization and outpace your industry.

Accompanying figures, tables, and appendixes are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Thoughtfully written and an easy listen

The Diversity Gap turned out to be a detailed, nuanced guide to interrogating oneself and one's organization on the subjects of racial bias and inclusion, and working towards substantive actions one can take to improve both. The author pulls no punches, but lays down no guilt either.
This book isn't a starter guide to understanding systemic biases and the history of racial oppression in the US - the author starts with the assumption that her audience is at least somewhat familiar with these topics. Instead, she builds on that foundation to offer a systematic evaluation of the roles race can play in a workplace as well as in personal life. She breaks things down into bite size concepts that are easy to understand.
I found it very informative and recommended it highly.
