Reviews

"In the evolving realm of DEI titles, Pinder-Amaker and Wadsworth have provided a next-level standout, guiding all manner of organizations in establishing a sustainable, inclusive culture. With authority and authenticity, the authors provide practical, concise direction illuminating the pitfalls and opportunities faced by anyone engaging in this difficult work."
--Booklist

"Excels in providing constructive, tactical ways of creating workplace cultures that are more inclusive."
--Charter

"It's happening. Increasingly, employees, business leaders, and managers want to bring their 'whole self' to work, and more organizations are starting the tough conversations necessary to give everyone the opportunity for success. But it takes know-how to forge a smart path forward, and there are consequences for getting this wrong. Did That Just Happen?! is the step-by-step guide for leaders committed to getting diversity and inclusion right."
--Deb Elam, CEO, DEI thought leader, and former president and chief DEI officer, GE Foundation

"Successful leaders understand that culture really is everything. On winning teams, nobody stands on the sidelines; every team member is valued, empowered, and contributes toward shared goals. But you don't leave this to chance. Did That Just Happen?! is a game plan for leaders looking to create a culture built for the long term and built for success."
--Mike Krzyzewski, head basketball coach, Duke University

"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

"The term 'diversity' has become the 'it' word. Unfortunately, it's kind of like the word 'spirituality.' Many love to profess, but fewer are willing to commit to a sincere practice. Did That Just Happen?! helps us move beyond lip service with the practical skills and insights to foster cultures of inclusive excellence. So, if you're ready to move your business, faith community, or school beyond milquetoast homogeneity and mediocre productivity, buy this book!"
--Dr. Jonathan Lee Walton, dean of the School of Divinity and Wait Chapel, Wake Forest University

"An essential road map for moving from diversity as a hollow corporate initiative to building vital, resilient organizations that are inclusive at their core. Filled with real-world anecdotes that resonate and with skills and practices that leaders can deploy immediately."
--Rich Paret, entrepreneur and tech executive, former senior engineering director, Google, and VP of engineering, Twitter
