"An outstanding source of information and advice for leaders who want to build inclusive work environments. It may also prove extremely beneficial for faculty and students of business administration schools. Highly recommended."
LIBRARY JOURNAL (Starred Review)


Build an inclusive organization from the top down

In this groundbreaking book, organizational psychologist and executive coach Gena Cox delivers the message that humans vary, and human variation is normal. Yet true inclusion that embraces these variations remains elusive in the workplace. That traumatizing state of affairs will continue until executives lead inclusion from the top of the organization. Drawing on psychological science, interviews with corporate leaders, the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) experts, and her own experience in corporate America, Cox goes beyond the business case for diversity and answers the clarion call for human-centered organizational leadership.

Leading Inclusion is not a how-to book; it’s a how-to-be book—one that educates, challenges, and empowers you and your C-suite and board colleagues to lead a diverse workforce effectively. You’ll learn the historical facts that created the racial inequities and systemic injustices that show up in the workplace, even today. Leading Inclusion shows the importance of taking the pulse of all your employees, so you can identify meaningful actions to build an inclusive, respect-first organizational culture.
Your organization can make a visible, tangible difference that employees will see and feel. Leading Inclusion will empower you to change your organization— and America—one employee at a time.
