Dr. Fay has spent many years guiding and influencing the leaders of tomorrow. This book presents a realistic and applicable approach on how to get everyone involved in the "social and digital inclusion". The social and digital intersection cannot be denied. To be an innovative leader in today’s world you must be able to leverage the power of a diverse business environment. Leaders from all generations can take something away from what Dr. Fay has given visibility to in Leveraging Intersectionality.

This book is truly a God-send. I have been looking for this kind of insight and understanding around the idea of Intersectionality. Dr. Fay does an outstanding job in articulating the meaning of "LI" and how we in the corporate world can improve both the top line and the bottom line. Her years of writing, researching and “living” what she talk about re-enforces her message. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to get pass Diversity and move into a much broader and more effective solution to inclusion. I have already started to "LI".
