A book isn't going to end racism or inequity. But it can be a start.
Birds of All Feathers is a timely call to action for employers, HR professionals, managers and employees to address diversity and inclusion — because it's not just the right thing to do, but the smart thing to do.
Michael Bach helps you develop a better understanding around the nuances of terms like diversity versus inclusion and equity versus equality, and shows how diversity and inclusion can drive innovation and creativity — critical to any business's survival in today's fickle marketplace. You'll learn how to craft a D&I policy that's effective, and how to start the work of dismantling systemic racism and inequity by creating safe work spaces where people can bring their whole selves, find advancement, and succeed.
Whether you are in the arts, healthcare, non-profit, or for-profit sectors, there is a business case for making your organisation a space of true inclusion. In Birds of All Feathers, Michael Bach presents a feisty and honest case for the business advantage of diversity and inclusion in the workplace with practical steps to get there.
This book shows you how to:
• Discover your organisation's 'why'
• Learn how to implement and sustain beneficial changes
• Determine how to measure success for your business
With more than twenty years of experience in the field, Michael Bach, founder of the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI), brings clarity and candor to a daunting subject, and shows you how to get diversity and inclusion right.
No more excuses. No more delays. Change — and growth — starts right here.
