INdivisible: RADICALLY RETHINKING INCLUSION FOR SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS RESULTS
INdivisible shows how organizations can bridge the gap between the promise and practice of inclusion. Challenging today’s piecemeal approaches, it provides a comprehensive framework to achieve visible impact for business, society, and sustainability. It shows how everyone – senior leaders, middle managers and individuals – plays a part.
Disruptive global challenges and shifting workforce expectations make it more important than ever to get inclusion right. Organizations need to draw on the skills, strengths and perspectives of the widest possible mix of people to find creative solutions and adapt to these changes. When inclusion flourishes, it galvanizes the whole working environment: attracting talent, fueling innovation, cultivating positive internal and external relationships, raising performance, and preparing organizations for the challenges ahead.
In this powerful book, Alison Maitland and Rebekah Steele give solid facts supporting the business case and step-by-step guidance to make inclusion happen. Inclusion has to be more than an afterthought, more than a few questions in an employee engagement survey, more than offering people a sense of belonging, more than focusing only on single-identity marginalized groups, and more than an end in itself.
