Leading Inclusion
Book Description
Organizational psychologist and executive coach Gena Cox asserts that although human variation is normal, true inclusion that embraces these variations is elusive in the workplace. Leading Inclusion, a “how-to-be” book, educates, challenges, and empowers the C-suite and board to lead inclusion from the top of the organization. It’s the only way employees will see the changes they deserve.

Dorie Clark, Wall Street Journal best-selling author, says this book is “an uncommon blend of storytelling, psychological science, and leadership insights.”

A business leader or board director who wants to get past the frustration of minimal progress on “diversity and inclusion initiatives” in their organizations.

Readers: Corporate executives, board directors, CHROs, HR leaders, DEI leaders, MBA students, EMBA students
