Diversity programmes are everywhere. But despite all the intention and focus, progress is painfully slow. Homophobia, transphobia, racism and misogyny remain stubbornly pervasive, and unfortunately, many inclusion programmes do more to create negativity toward the diversity agenda than they do to bring about measurable and lasting change.

Why isn’t change happening more rapidly? What are we doing wrong? Or better yet, what should we be doing differently if we want to drive different outcomes?

Although most of us are curious about diversity, and some would go so far as to call ourselves allies, very few of us are skilled in inclusion. In the absence of knowing what to do, we double down on being nice and hope that will be enough. Unfortunately, this optimistic attitude may harm as much as help.

This book is for anyone who wants to dive into the complex task of supporting diversity and increasing inclusion. It’s filled with insight and practical know-how. It will help you navigate the polarised and divisive issues we face, and move beyond just talking about diversity to playing an active role in shaping an inclusive future.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Incredibly well-researched ... More than just words on a page: it encourages deeper, more meaningful conversations. It gives us all an opportunity to learn, reflect and, ultimately, urges us to take action ... Suzy challenged my thinking without making me feel judged' Ugo Monye 'An important book full of startling statistics and personal stories ... A practical guide about how to change our perspectives and how to be an ally ... Invaluable' Razia Iqbal, BBC News 'A fascinating and well-researched exploration of the biggest issues that face our life. If you want to know how to start to solve the most challenging problems of inequality, rather than just talking about them, read this book' Clare Balding 'Insightful, compassionate, relevant, personal and extremely well-researched ... It will leave you with lots of practical insight and inspired to act' Deborah Frances-White 'A refreshing read. Allowing space for those less well advanced, and even those less well inclined, towards diversity ... I often say that "dignity is not a finite resource" and this book feels like it is written with that in mind' John Amaechi, psychologist 'Suzy Levy shares uncomfortable insights into ourselves and society, then provides ways forward with humanity and wisdom' Jeremy Sanders, Cambridge University 'Suzy has created a powerful narrative that builds on both lived experience and collective wisdom. Her compelling "call to action" is backed-up with meaningful insights and examples we can all learn from' Beth Knight, Cambridge University Institute of Sustainability Leadership 'A powerful and thought-provoking journey into the world of diversity ... An essential read for anyone who wants to make a difference' Simon Goodman, Group CIO, Network Rail 'Analyses the roots of discrimination in our society in all its forms, as well as the influence of religion and social norms. Through the different chapters, Levy dissects the problems and encourages every one of us to take active action and stop being just “nice”. She also takes the time to see things “from the other side”, and advocates for sensible debate, allyship and using our sphere of influence' Intelligent Magazine
