As usual, I learn from Jenny Garrett OBE every time we interact - this time via her latest fantastic book. Share this hugely practical book with friends, colleagues and others who either want to, or perhaps need to, become more ADEPT at living in a modern world where the global majority deserve far more. - Dr. Suzanne Doyle-Morris

A book of bountiful evidence and facts on the state of play today in terms of racial equality in UK workplaces. Combining powerful personal experience presented dispassionately with figures and stories from across the recent past, Jenny offers a simple framework to get the reader – who is curious and interested to make a difference – to be part of the solution. A recommended read. - Sarah Churchman OBE

If you read one book this year, make it this one! I have worked with Jenny on a number of occasions and always come away having learnt something and with a renewed vigour to make a difference. The fact [that] Jenny has put her unique storytelling abilities, borne of her lived and professional experience, into a book is just a gift to us all. In her introduction, Jenny talks about the African proverb ‘if you think you are too small to make a difference, you haven’t spent the night with a mosquito’. I couldn’t think of a stronger rally call for everyone to listen, learn and continue making the difference we can […]. - Gareth Hind

I never feel that I’m doing enough to understand and tackle racial inequity[.] I don’t think it’s possible for me or any white person to ever be doing enough in this space. We can all learn more, listen more, hear more and take more action. If, like me, you want to play your part in tackling racial inequity then you really must read this book. It’s time to be the Empathetic changemaker the world needs you to be. It’s also time we started to accept the those who are Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and or have been racialised as 'ethnic Minorities' are actually, as Jenny explains, the Global Majority. The clock is ticking for those of us white folks, we are the Global Minority, we need to learn fast, and make change happen even faster […] in the interest of everyone on our little planet. - Andy Woodfield

If we’re going to tackle racial injustice, then we need to address the fact that there is no such thing as a level playing field, and that the systems in which we live and work are themselves biased and discriminatory. Unless we tackle systemic inequity, there is little chance of achieving racial justice. This book is an important contribution to the field. It helps to increase our understanding and awareness of the systemic injustices at play in our workplaces, organisations and wider systems, and is also a call to all of us to do the work – with guidance on how to become a change-maker, as well as actionable steps we can all take towards greater equity. Most important of all, it stresses the importance of doing our own personal work to enable us to become instruments for change. - Aboodi Shabi

Equality vs Equity is a great work authored through the lived experience lens of specialist coach and trainer in the diversity arena, Jenny Garrett OBE.

I am excited for people to read this book and use it to have moments to have self-reflection, but to also consider the role they play in shifting the dialogue we need to have around race and identity. This is a book for everyone and all. Well done Jenny for continuing this important conversation. - Geoffrey O. Williams, Global VP of Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Burberry

This book is an extension of Jenny’s passion, honesty and ability to open your thought process and understanding of the world as it equates to racial equity. Its unapologetic, enlightening, yet practical. Jenny is voicing the conversations that your black and brown colleagues are having behind closed doors every day. If you are serious about understanding racial equity and challenging your own assumptions, this book is a ‘must’ read for anyone to actively engage in changing the narrative. - Devi Virdi

Jenny Garrett has written a book that will soon become essential to anyone committed to developing and nurturing equitable workplaces and societies. Jenny draws on her experience in professional and personal spaces to inform how individuals, groups, and societies can become more aware of racial injustices, and she offers practice recommendations that can lead to greater inclusivity. I will be recommending this book to both colleagues and students. - Professor Carole Elliott

I met Jenny in the lockdown Zone, I mention this because it was a tipping point in the life and history for Black People. Notably we experienced the pandemic, the George Floyd murder, and a global community awakening and awareness. I think this book is timely, it is needed and instructional to make sense of the world we ae living in and to help navigate how we move from equality to equity. - Karl George MBE Partner RSM

Knotty, gordian issues require focused minds and bold actions to unravel them and mobilise change. Jenny Garrett’s new book does this honestly, vulnerably and directly to the entrenched issue of racism. With finesse and compelling assuredness, Jenny invites one and all to the table to explore the issue of race justice and to do so from the position of ‘the solution focused change agent’. She compels the reader to state, full throated and unapologetically, that ‘The Time for change is now. The agent of change is me.’ Get ready, dear reader, to be equipped, emboldened, and roused to be a powerful catalyst for change. - Sharon Amesu

This is a much needed book for the current times we are living in. It is extremely well researched with academic references and lived experiences. It is easy to understand and implement as a handbook for every organisation or leader who aspires to be anti-racist. Jenny explains the difference between equality and equity in a way that makes so much sense, while offering practical tips and strategies to achieve true equity in the workplace. - Wali Rahman, Diversity and Wellbeing Manager, Forestry Commission

I love Jenny’s positive approach. In Equality vs Equity Jenny acknowledges that real change is happening and explains why the shift from equality to equity is a vital part of the process if we are to keep up the momentum. I applaud Jenny’s positive mindset and progressive nature which make Equality vs Equity a must read for anyone who truly wants to understand how to move the dial forward. - Gamiel Yafai

The conversation on racial inequality in the UK has progressed over the last few years but there is still much to do, learn and be implemented in order to make real progress on this agenda. Equality vs Equity: Tackling Issues of Race in the Workplace is the tool we've been waiting for that provides really helpful guidance and practical solutions [for] an ongoing issue and for organisations willing to make the change. I really do recommend reading this! - Sharniya Ferdinand

Jenny has achieved through this book a brilliant work of authentically narrating her lived experiences, intricately woven persuasive arguments about the urgency of amplifying equity and providing actionable strategies for anyone.

This is a must read for anyone interested in contributing to creating an equitable future in business and society at large. - Dr Jummy Okoya

Jenny has been challenging and shaping equality in the workplace for many years and as a result is a leader in this space. I have witnessed leaders change their internal processes as a result of her delivery and heard employees reflect on the impact they can have following her sessions. I know that this book will have a huge impact on every reader and will continue to shape ED&I globally. - Sonia Meggie

An excellent book for anyone who wants to learn more and truly understand the importance of equity and how to create inclusion through the lens of race. Jenny shares many great examples of her own lived experiences which really help to bring the book to life. - Asif Sadiq

The narrative around racial equity has always been uncomfortable in the workplace; made even more difficult when you include the many layers of intersectionality. […] After nearly two decades of […] debate, this book will offer a fresh insight into racial bias and discrimination, and how leaders can become more comfortable and, more importantly, diligent change makers rather than […] complacent managers sitting on the side-lines expecting change. - Sonia Brown MBE, Founder & Director, National Black Women’s Network (NBWN) and SistaTalk

In this book Jenny has provided an easy, informative, and engaging resource that bridges the gap between awareness for race equality, and the practical steps we must all take to ensure race equity. This is not just another book about race, this is a playbook that will shift gears for race equity, from conversation to action to long term impact! - Pauline Miller, Chief Equity Officer EMEA, Dentsu international
