Most American corporations invest money, time, and energy in diversity, equity, and inclusion, popular terms that realistically bear little weight. Companies say they want to hire people from a wide array of backgrounds, but do they even know what a diverse workforce looks like? Why do so many companies fail in creating and cultivating an environment that truly embraces diversity and its benefits?
In The Big House: A Human-Centered & Progressive Approach to DEI and Positive Workforce Engagement, HR executive Ovell Barbee, Jr. delivers essential advice to company leaders on how to stop the silence, have difficult conversations addressing race and diversity, and learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable, to achieve an environment where everyone can flourish.
Barbee's compelling examples of real-life experiences, combined with his passion for meaningful and authentic diversity, will motivate and inspire leaders to have the courage to build a better, human-centered workplace.
