Product Details


“The most important work in the field of diversity that I have read in recent years. It displays amazing insight into the challenges of the current state of managing diversity yet ignites the imagination about what is truly possible. A must-read book for every CEO, senior leader and professional practitioner of diversity in any industry."
—Frederick D. Hobby, President, Institute for Diversity in Health Management, American Hospital Association

“This is an indispensable book for any leader or talent management professional who wants to support the progress of a diversity initiative. Dr. Thomas has spent a lifetime providing us with models that have refined and extended our thinking.”
—Beverly Kaye, founder and CEO, Career Systems International, and coauthor of Love ‘Em or Lose ‘Em and Love It, Don’t Leave It

“Dr. Thomas is a true pioneer in the field of strategic diversity management. This book is a continuation and extension of his decades-long legacy of thought leadership. His insights and approach are a targeted guide to what’s needed to thrive in the future and allow all of us— organizations and individuals—to reach our full potential.”
—Mike Prokopeak, Vice President and Editorial Director, MediaTec, publisher of Diversity Executive, Talent Management, and Chief Learning Officer

“The trials, tribulations, and opportunities facing fictional CEO Jeff Kilt in the latter part of the book sound all too familiar! Kilt is a composite of many well-intentioned leaders who lack a framework or process to achieve world-class status—a case study on the shortcomings of good intentions alone. For those who have wondered what’s next in the field of strategic diversity management, this guide is it.”
 —David L. Casey, Vice President and Diversity Officer, CVS Caremark

“Roosevelt Thomas stimulates the reader with a compelling conceptualization, authentic examples, and thought-provoking analogies, such as how changing an organizational culture is comparable to changing an individual’s personality.”
—David A. Kravitz, Professor and Management Area Chair, School of Management, George Mason University

“This important book provides fresh insights and a strategic process that will assist governments and market-based leadership in developing national diversity policies and strategies.”
—Robert L. Lattimer, Senior Fellow, Diversity Studies, Rutgers University
