Product Details


“[Denise’s] perspective is timeless, unique, and the only way to truly create a culture that inspires the best in people and organizations. You will enjoy reading this book and benefit as a business leader but mostly as a member of the human race.”—Ron Johnson, business leader Apple, Target, JCPenney

“[Denise’s] understanding of cultures and the way they form and evolve is extraordinary.”—Jony Ive, chancellor of Royal College of Art

When We Are Seen serves as a life raft for those of us who are simply keeping our heads above water in an ocean of sociocultural complexities within corporate communities across the world.”—Indira Etwaroo, director of the Steve Jobs Theater

When We Are Seen demystifies iconic brands like Apple and humanizes the story of extraordinary accomplishment. In a time [where] we need to invest in leaders more than ever, Denise offers us a masterclass in empathy.”—Seth Goldenberg, Chief Design Innovation Officer, ImagineCo

“It’s not surprising that the first Black woman to rise to the C-suite of one of the world’s most storied tech giants has her own powerful story to tell. This book will make you think differently about the world and your ability to make it better.”—Caroline Clarke, author of Take a Lesson

“Raw, authentic, and introspective—Denise Young pulls back the curtain on her time as a C-suite executive at Apple, demonstrating resilience and empathy characteristic of her leadership. A must-read for anyone struggling to bring their true leadership self to the workplace.”—John Baird, bestselling coauthor of Leading with Heart and executive coach at Apple

“Denise Young—a pioneer—has taken the time to give us a peak behind the curtain and a view of how to be successful while maintaining one’s integrity and grace. This book is a must-read.”—Terence Blanchard, Grammy award–winning musician and composer

“Denise Young’s luscious When We Are Seen resides at the tender intersection of two powerful human emotions—to be seen and to see. And ultimately, to work together to build a future big enough to hold us all.”—Keith Yamashita, founder of SYPartners and The Institute for Moral Imagination

“Denise Young is a pioneer, in the truest sense of the term. That she had chosen to share parts of her journey in this work should likewise prove inspiring for all those who read it.”—Delroy Lindo, actor, producer, and director

“Denise is a natural storyteller whose downhome and straightforward manner makes this book a pleasure to read.”—Wynton Marsalis, musician

“Rarely, like one in a million, a talent comes along that is magnanimous in multiple disciplines. I would describe this book as one that captures such in Denise Young.”—Henry Threadgill

“Thoughtful reflections on race, gender, and human connection.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Stirring . . . Unlike many other DEI volumes, this book defends inclusivity as an end in itself, rather than a means to higher retention or profits . . . This stands out in the crowded field of business memoirs.”Publishers Weekly
