The subject of diversity carries fresh urgency, with racial inequalities in the headlines, civil unrest reappearing and immigration igniting debate – even as the US grows ever-more diverse. This engaging report by diversity adviser Lauren Leader-Chivée makes a data-driven case that US businesses and civic institutions must prepare for a society in which members of minority groups will make up more than half the population within a few decades. No one escapes scrutiny here – business, government, educators and the media all must do more to give women and minorities a voice. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends Leader-Chivée’s persuasive case for championing diversity to HR professionals, executives, community activists and those who work with US immigration policy.
In this summary, you will learn
- How diversity pays big dividends to companies that embrace it,
- How even those who don’t identify as minorities can “acquire” diversity and
- Why a “multicultural” perspective is better than being “colorblind.”
