BPL EVENT: Dr. Stephanie Pinder-Amaker and Dr. Lauren Wadsworth ― Did That Just Happen?!
Join the BPL in partnership with the Kirstein Business Library and Innovation Center for this online author talk about an accessible guide showing all people how to create and sustain diversity and inclusivity in the workplace—no matter your identity, industry, or level of experience.
We know that diverse teams are stronger, smarter, and more profitable, and many companies are attempting to hire more diverse teams, but most struggle to create a real culture of inclusivity in which people from all backgrounds feel comfortable. As clinical psychologists, as well as individuals with marginalized identities, Dr. Stephanie Pinder-Amaker and Dr. Lauren Wadsworth show the emotional and physical impact of marginalization and how that leads to a decrease in employee engagement and, often, increased job turnover.
Carol Fulp, author of Success Through Diversity: Why Inclusive Companies Will Win, will moderate this discussion.
About the book
“Did That Just Happen?!” will be invaluable for employees who come from underrepresented communities and identities (identities discussed include race, age, disability, sexual orientation, citizenship status, and gender expression). But the book is essential for leaders of companies, supervisors, HR departments, and for anyone who wants to understand and support diversity/equity/inclusion practices. The book will also make readers feel more confident in their navigating of friendships/interactions with people who hold different identities.
“Finally! In this era of corporate pledges of commitment to diversity, a detailed and accessible ‘blueprint’ for establishing and sustaining diversity in the workplace. The authors use case studies to demonstrate how and why organizations—even with the best intentions—so often miss their diversity goals. This is imperative reading for all workplace personnel irrespective of position, executives and staff alike.” —Harry Edwards, PhD, professor emeritus of sociology, University of California, Berkeley
