Description


This book provides very relatable insight into root causes of prejudice and discrimination as well as devious ways that systemic bias is implemented to sustain inequality. The lives of key characters vividly illustrate strain and pain experienced by perpetrators and victims of bias. Lots of relatable examples also illustrate ways that scores of individuals are overcoming biased situations by using ethics and resilience-based strategies to achieve success. Helpful information is included on dealing with complex situations that are discriminatory in nature; ways to gain restoration after having led or participated in biased behavior toward others; and executive leaders finding ways to strengthen equality and synergy while mitigating friction and bias within their teams. All these scenarios are presented from the perspective of pitfalls and steppingstones that can worsen or improve our situations. Pitfalls are those decision traps where wrong decisions or actions can lead to an individual or an organization's demise. In contrast, steppingstones are opportunities to behave and govern in ways that lead to increase and elevation.
