Reviews

I applaud Howard Ross for raising the issues, for bringing his heart, soul, spirit and passion to an issue he has devoted much of his life to. We have no choice but to embrace diversity, and Howard says we must confront our own biases in that embracing, and in our effort to construct a more inclusive society. His words ain't nothing but the truth, embracing my Ebonics. This is mind-expanding and important work.--Julianne Malveaux, President of Bennett College for Women
In ReInventing Diversity, Howard Ross explains that creating what he calls "Organizational Community" requires vision, which sounds like a platitude. Then we read on to discover that vision is much more than sight, or even foresight. Vision involves an intense level of focus and planning that anticipate the role of diversity in the globalized 21st century. If Howard Ross didn't exist, we'd have to invent him. Or at least reinvent him.--Kojo Nnamdi, Host, The Kojo Nnamdi Show, WAMU FM, Washington DC
This book, like Howard Ross, is brimming with substance and soul. It is an important work that invites courageous conversations and difficult dialogues with ourselves and with others. Page after page offers us the wisdom, inspiration and tools we need to be effective advocates for diversity and inclusion. At last, here is the book we have been waiting for!--Johnnetta Betsch Cole, President Emerita of Spelman College and Bennett College for Women
Howard Ross' global and academic experiences are artfully reflected in this book. His insights and guidance make this a must read for anyone wanting to create culturally inclusive community in organizations. I plan to make it required reading for leaders wherever I go.--Rosalyn Taylor O'Neale, VP, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer Campbell Soup Company
ReInventing Diversity is a true reflection of Howard Ross's heart and soul and his decades-long commitment to transforming human relationships. This book not only challenges us to think differently about diversity and inclusion, but it also points to a new direction about how we can overcome the lines and barriers that divide us. As a civil rights leader on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality, I use these lessons daily.--Joe Solmonese, President, Human Rights Campaign (HRC)
