Workforce diversity is good business.

​Workforce diversity, as a business strategy, can drive success and literally transform our organizations. It can also offer our companies a distinct business advantage over other companies, allowing us to:

- innovate faster,
- outperform competitors, and
- produce higher financial returns.

More and more, diverse organizations have been achieving unprecedented growth in all the major industries and on a global scale. But true inclusive diversity in our organizations is difficult to attain, hard to sustain, and honestly, about a lot more than just economic benefit.

This book is for all of you who want change in the workplace and know your companies could do more and be more. It's for business leaders, hiring managers, human resources and people operations teams, all those within your organization who believe things could be and should be done differently. And it's for people who understand that workforce diversity is a better way to do business but are looking for guidance on how to do something about it to change their organizations.

In Women, Minorities, and Other Extraordinary People, Barbara Adams not only explains the economic and moral crisis that businesses and industries face when inclusion isn't achieved but also lays out clear, actionable steps you can take to develop diverse and inclusive workforces and begin the process of change. As an organization development expert in diversity who's been helping companies create systemic processes of change for over 20 years, Adams offers tangible solutions to complex issues that will enable you to walk a new path of diversity and inclusion, heightening your organization's performance and success.
