At the same time she presents a clear guide for leaders of all types of organisations about how to meaningfully address the systematic structures of oppression and outlines the real gains to had from fostering equity and equality.Real Wins sets out easy to follow and proven strategies for dealing with 8 key challenges that commonly face many minority groups. Packed with eye opening examples and exploring issues of power, privilege and visibility, the book charts the harsh realities of being 'different' and the impact of calling out injustice.

Michelle presents useful ways to resist stereotypes, including imagined scenarios and conversations in the workplace, and concrete strategies for recruiting and managing diverse teams. Each chapter concludes with practical actions which have been tried and tested in her work with organisations such as UEFA, The NBA, Ernst & Young, Adidas and Cambridge University.Accessible, engaging, and challenging,Real Wins is a highly practical guide to the different types of activism you can use as part of your own self-leadership journey.
