In today’s increasingly diverse, global, interconnected business world, diversity and inclusion is no longer just the right thing to do; it is a core leadership competency and central to the success of business. Working effectively across differences such as gender, culture, age, race, and sexual orientation not only leads to a more productive, innovative corporate culture but also to a better engagement with customers and clients. The Inclusion Dividend provides a framework to tap the bottom-line impact that results from an inclusive culture. Most leaders have the intent to be inclusive, but translating that into a truly inclusive outcome with employees, customers, and other stakeholders requires a focused change effort. The authors provide straightforward advice on how to achieve the kind of meritocracy that will result in a tangible dividend and move companies ahead of the competition.

Gildan Media and Bibliomotion are proud to bring you another Bibliomotion Audiobook. Featuring exceptional content for today’s listener, these notable audiobooks contain the essential tools that can be applied to every facet of your life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Diversity, like corporate social responsibility, is one of those buzz concepts that managers love to promote, despite not knowing how it fits into a company’s strategic vision. Here, consultants Kaplan and Donovan provide a textbook approach to the ‘diversity and inclusion’ (D&I) topic, down to key takeaways and discussion exercises. The book opens by making the business case for inclusion, moves onto the psychological underpinning of bias and its effects on business, and finishes with two practical chapters on ‘change strategies.’ Real world examples, like the fact that Facebook only recently added a female executive to its board or H&M’s misguided use of ‘all blond mannequins in its Thirty-Fourth Street store and all brunettes in its Harlem store,’ enrich the arguments…it’s rare to find a business book that so soundly hits the zeitgeist while also capably applying the best social sciences research to an important topic.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “An insightful read. The Inclusion Dividend sheds light on core concepts for understanding diversity and inclusion dynamics and provides strategies for organizations to realize inclusion’s full impact on the bottom line.”

    Edith Hunt, chief diversity officer, Goldman Sachs

  • “Kaplan and Donovan help remove the veil of mystery that shrouds inclusion. It provides a much-needed narrative for organizations to rethink and reposition their journey toward ingraining sustainable diversity and closing the intent-impact inclusion chasm—the end goal being the holy grail of pure meritocracy for all.”

    Nia Joynson-Romanzina, head global diversity & inclusion, Swiss Reinsurance Company

  • The Inclusion Dividend is the diversity and inclusion conversation of tomorrow we should be having with our business leaders today. This is a book to be shared with the entire organization.”

    Kate Vernon, director of strategy and communications, Community Business

  • The Inclusion Dividend is a journey that takes us beyond the fatigued word diversity. Looking at the importance of inclusiveness, higher levels of engagement, and understanding our biases is crucial to talent management overall. Kaplan and Donovan continue to provide offer a refreshing view on lessons learned from some of the best in the global business world.”

    Nancy J. Di Dia, CEO and president of Di Dia Diversity Consulting Group, LLC
