Praise for The Power of Inclusion

"Diversity and inclusion are among the most challenging tasks an executive is faced with these days. This book does a great job of helping the reader understand why this is important and what to do about it."

Bart Butzer, Executive Vice President for Stores, Target Corporation

"Mike Hyter and Judy Turnock describe with precision and clarity the next step on the journey from diversity to inclusion. This book is a must read for anyone interested in helping corporations compete more successfully in the global economy."

  Price M. Cobbs, M.D., Author, My American Life: From Rage to Entitlement

"Mike Hyter’s new book resonates with my belief that diversity and inclusion are critical elements in any company’s long-term success. Doing this right goes beyond having a strategic understanding of the topic, but requires a process that companies can follow. This book helps provide the trail-map."

Sally Jewell, President and CEO, REI (Recreational Equipment, Inc.)

"Finally a straightforward approach! Hyter and Turnock have taken a complex, multi-faceted subject and made it practical, implementable and measurable. Here’s why it is critical for organizations to focus on the people side of the employment equation, because failure to do so threatens our ability to remain competitive."

O. Redia Anderson, Chief Diversity Officer, National Principal, Diversity & Inclusion, Deloitte & Touche USA LLP

"The Power of Inclusion brings much-needed transparency: the lack of full inclusion or full human capital engagement is a direct drain on shareholder value."

Ronald C. Parker, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, PepsiCo North America

"Finally, here is a book on implementing organizational diversity strategy that is practical and action oriented rather than abstract theorizing. It is a must read for any CEO or general manager who wants to address diversity and inclusion in a strategic and sustainable manner."

David A. Thomas, H. Naylor Fitzhugh Professor of Business Administration and Senior Associate Dean, Harvard Business School
