“Diversity and Inclusion” experts Mark Kaplan and Mason Donovan make the business case for “D&I.” They provide a framework for creating a culture of inclusion in your workplace. The authors’ intentions are good and their information is solid, but the book’s repetition makes it hard to extract their best ideas. For a boost in that direction, their solid “Inclusion Initiative” model in the last two chapters provides a strong, workable framework for putting their concepts into action. getAbstract recommends this manual to executives, HR personnel, hiring managers, small-business owners and anyone seeking to make their workplace more profitable through diversity. This topic is of pivotal importance in an increasingly global and diverse work environment.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why “Diversity and Inclusion” (D&I) are essential for a business’s success;
- How greater diversity and inclusion increase productivity, innovation and engagement; and
- What the business model for promoting D&I in your company suggests.
