In Diversity is Not a Dirty Word: Harnessing the Power of Inclusion to Create Anti-Racist Organizations, Dr. Kanika Sims, MD, MPH offers professional insight, personal stories, and measurable action steps to help leaders build organizations that celebrate and nurture diverse workforces. This book invites all people, especially people in positions of power within their organization, to deeply consider impactful diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
Throughout the book, Dr. Kanika challenges readers to empathize with the experience of people of color, especially Black people, in corporate America and academia. She provides leaders with tools to harness the untapped talent that goes unrecognized due to implicit bias and the centering of white cultural standards. Organizational leaders will come to understand how tapping into that talent and creating inclusive workplace environments will position their organization to increase revenue, dominate market share, and perhaps make the world a better place, too.
