Innovating for Diversity: Lessons from Top Compani es That are Disrupting Old Practices to Achieve In clusivity, Equity and Business Success (Hardback)

Awaiting publication


Solving for Diversity in Tech focuses on the lessons we can learn from tech divisions in several companies that have innovated their approaches to diverse hiring, retention, and advancement, and introduces the people who have helped to drive the innovation. The rapid growth of the technology sector in America is fueled by innovation. Yet, the core principles of successful innovation-courage, risk-taking, ideation and challenge, collaboration, resilience, leadership-that can lead tech teams to breakthroughs are rarely applied with the same rigor to the problem of recruiting and developing diverse talent. The pandemic, coupled with the growing skills shortage and demands for racial and gender equity, is pushing companies to shake up old practices.

The book profiles leaders committed to allyship who have driven the change, reflecting on the cultural and organizational barriers in their companies which had to be challenged. Case studies are included that describe different outcomes, focusing on the broader cultural shifts within the companies, resulting from the innovations that have been implemented. A number of the companies (Citi, Elsevier, Bank of America, for example) share how radical changes to diverse talent acquisition and retention have been operationalized at greater scale. Each case study represents a distillation of lessons and best practices applicable to any business, offering a framework for action. This framework addresses large scale policy changes that are needed to reward companies addressing racial, gender, and pay equity, investing in training, and advancing the economic mobility of workers. Chapters include:

Reflections on Where We Go from Here

Central to this book is diving into the backgrounds and motivations of the leaders driving change. While each person identifies a business imperative for change, they all have deeply personal stories for why they chose a particular approach. They all model allyship in action and demonstrate how any leader can move far beyond performative allyship to create real change. This book includes the personal experiences of a diverse group of professionals recruited into their organizations, sharing their reflections on how the changes impacted their careers, and offering their perspectives on the innovations and policies that worked well and those that did not. The book calls out tangible actions that leaders can take in addressing the issues raised.
