The Inclusion Paradox: The Obama Era and the Transformation of Global Diversity: Andrés T. Tapia

See on Scoop.itMixed American Life

Book Description

“Achieving true inclusion is hard. Very hard. Harder than achieving awareness. Harder than achieving tolerance and sensitivity. Harder than diversity itself. In The Inclusion Paradox: The Obama Era and the Transformation of Global Diversity Andrés Tapia, Hewitt Associates’ Chief Diversity Officer, reveals how in these times of unprecedented peril and opportunity, diversity’s demographic tsunami is accelerating today’s social, economic, and political tectonic shifts. In the book, he explores what is required to move into the next generation of diversity work in ways that get past the tired and clichéd approaches. He makes the case for making inclusion relevant for all, including the white male, and breaks ground by challenging the notion that the melting pot leads to inclusion. On the contrary, Tapia makes the case that “equality” often does not equal “same.” The Inclusion Paradox also focuses on the cultural implications of the Obama Era in the United States and around the world. More than a political point in time, the Obama Era is a cultural marker that succinctly captures the various global trends converging at this time in history.”
