This unique collection of papers, from authors whose experience and nationalities are themselves diverse, captures intellectual and personal reflections on diversity. The authors offer unique perspectives into diversity on an individual level, as well as the experiential challenges of implementing diversity programs at the country, public sector, company and civil society levels. In doing so, the book identifies a variety of elements that define 'a multi-faceted reality' that is at once contradictory, deeply personal, artistic, emotionally evocative and intellectually stimulating.

'This vast and varied array of perspectives on diversity justly reflects the complexity of the topic. The selection of articles engages us, challenges us and encourages deep reflection, all critical precedents to progress in managing diversity.' - Roxanne Decyk, Corporate Affairs Director, Shell International

'As with most of the truly transformational issues facing businesses today, diversity's success hinges more upon leadership than management. April and Shockley identify this crucial fact early in their book and proceed to challenge the reader's ideas on the topic. Part historical-overview, part cautionary tale, part road map, the text stretches, pokes and at times, expands the so-called conventional wisdom on diversity in the workplace. With lucid contributions from practitioners and scholars across the globe, the authors and editors find the appropriate medium between theoretical enquiry and practical advice. I recommend it to business executives, policy makers, strategists and all others wishing to unleash the true potential of their respective organization.' - Chris Howard, Associate Vice President Strategic & Leadership Initiatives, University of Oklahoma, USA and Chairman, Impact Young Lives Foundation
