Published by the American Bar Association (ABA), Exclusion: Strategies for Improving Diversity in Recruitment, Retention and Promotion is an essential resource for anyone who has ever felt alone and marginalized, or for anyone who seeks to become an ally in the quest for inclusive workplace cultures.

The subtle actions that make an employee feel like an outsider in the workplace, and impact today's professional work environments are termed micro-inequities, and this extensively-researched book offers workable strategies for changing the behaviors that create them.

Through interviews with professionals (senior level and mid-career), the reader will experience examples of the micro-inequities that have created cultures of exclusion for many professionals based on a characteristic that made him or her an outsider: age, race, gender, accent, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic background/class. Behind these honest testimonials are the reasons behind organizational attrition, and these are the barriers that stand in the way of your employees feeling self-actualized and engaged. Their testimonials bring to life the common syndromes of workplace adversity and how sometimes the feelings of exclusion damage a person's self-esteem and sense of self-worth the emotions underlying their employment dilemmas and complicated career decisions.

The reader will also learn best practices and strategies for eliminating micro-inequities in the workplace through conversations/interviews with professionals who have been recognized for achieving some level of success with creating an inclusive culture.

None of us are immune from bias. We all possess prejudices and if left unexamined and challenged, we increase our chances of engaging in the subtle discrimination that forms micro-inequities. This book is the product of hundreds of hours of interviews with employees from a variety of industries: health care, engineering, media, financial services, and nonprofit organizations. It is certain to help your firm or organization realize a workforce where their employees feel connected to their work and the organizational mission.
