Johnnie Johnson, a successful entrepreneur and former all-pro football player from the NFL, and Dr. Michael E. Webber, a distinguished professor and corporate executive in charge of research at a global company, use decades of experience in coaching, mentoring and leadership to lay out 8 ways you can support diversity, equity, and inclusion for all at your workplace, in your community, and for everyday living.
With this book they explain that we all have a role to play and the first step starts with each of us. If you love your neighbors, talk about it, check your biases, expand your comfort zone, build diverse teams, collaborate, and align actions with goals and values, then you will discover you are closer than you think to making real progress.
Using clear, accessible examples from their experience, this easy-to-read book presents actions readers can take to make a positive contribution on diversity, equity and inclusion. Though many anecdotes are pulled from athletics and engineering, the lessons they offer are applicable to all sectors of society and can foster individual growth and collective harmony. With no-nonsense explanations and straightforward writing, this book is quick to read and simple to internalize.
