The time has arrived for inclusion. During the past year, the world has been rocked by the murder of George Floyd and the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement, and had its eyes opened to the deep institutional inequalities highlighted by Covid-19. If we have learned anything, it is that new leaders are needed more than ever before.
Hephzi Pemberton's Diversity Playbook is an empowering and uplifting guide that uses proven expertise, factual examples and practical tools to help you transform your business and leadership approach. Building on relevant case studies and the latest research, Hephzi demonstrates the many tangible benefits for those who embrace and embed inclusion and diversity into their businesses: they will innovate and adapt more rapidly, their workplace cultures will attract the latest talent and they will reach a wider set of customers and clients who feel valued and understood.
Navigating the world of diversity and inclusion is not without its difficulties. For many it only comes as a reactive response to institutional mistakes and can often be driven by fear and anxiety. The Diversity Playbook provides you with the value sets required to change your thinking and shows that communication and data are the keys to connecting with your audience.
Using engaging illustrations and graphs, this easy to read, interactive playbook, shows you how to optimise your business practices for inclusion and diversity while ensuring productivity, performance and profit. Hephzi shows exactly how to activate accountability;
