The Inclusion Breakthrough
IN THIS SUMMARY
Although most Fortune 500 companies have some kind of diversity program, Miller and Katz believe that the majority have been unsuccessful because of what they call diversity in a box restrictive policies, practices, and structures that smother most attempts to challenge the status quo and make diversity a way of life. It is their assertion that organizations fail to reach higher performance and greater success because they neglect to support the inclusion of diverse perspectives, nationalities, and backgrounds; they fail to understand the importance of aligning them for a common purpose; and they fall short in enabling them to interact to create enhanced results.
In The Inclusion Breakthrough, the authors present a proven methodology that every executive, manager, and change leader can effectively use to leverage diversity. Its principles and practices show how to embrace and utilize differences so that they become a powerful tool for the kind of organizational change that effectively takes advantage of new sources of success.
