Description
Pie Graphs are commonly used by corporations to illustrate their diversity. Improvements in pie graph analytics have been accepted as progress by corporate standards. "True Diversity" challenges this conventional wisdom, exposes the inherent weaknesses of pie graphs and challenges companies to Go Beyond The Pie Graph. A must read for Human Resource professionals, business owners, managers, and executives, this influential book will revolutionize how we view diversity in the workplace. To group all African Americans, Hispanics, Asians etc., into one slice of a pie graph is an insult and an undermining of the commercial power of a truly diverse organization. Consider the following individuals: - An African American physician, born and raised in Uganda - An African American chef, born and raised in Philadelphia - A Hispanic poet, born and raised in the Bronx by Puerto Rican parents - A Cuban refugee who left his parents behind in communist Cuba - A Chinese executive of a government run bus company - A Vietnamese immigrant who came to America after the Vietnam War for asylum Categorizing all these unique individuals into the same slice of a pie graph is clearly a flawed and antiquated method of thinking. And yet, corporations continue to group people together who are more dissimilar than they are similar. So, why do we do this? Is it so we can make ourselves feel better? How can we harness the power of their True Diversity that is not captured on the pie graph? This book seeks to answer these crucial questions and more.
