“The Diversity and Inclusion Handbook” by Sondra Thiederman


The giant D had barely fallen over Campus Martius on the northern bank of the Detroit River when the top workplace diversity book of the year was published. “The Diversity and Inclusion Handbook” by Sondra Thiederman came out on New Year’s Day in a year that would see Michigan’s largest company flip from a century of male leadership to having a woman, Mary Barra appointed as CEO. This move by General Motors put diversity and inclusion at the forefront of the conversation in many human resources meetings.

The book starts with a fresh look at why diversity and inclusion are important in any organization.

“When team members of all backgrounds are included, valued, and respected for their uniqueness and what they have to contribute,” says Thiederman, “they truly are more creative, more committed, more collaborative, and more motivated to participate to the fullness of their potential.”

Once the argument is made Thiederman names three areas of diversity and inclusion and provides a roadmap for the successful implementation of each. Following her principles and advise can transform your organization to new heights of productivity, quality and profits.
