Focusing on behaviors rather than bias, the author offers practical ways to build more inclusive relationships, teams, and workplaces to identify specific tactics that can help people move forward.
"Participants at leadership conferences often tell Sally, "Please don't spend your time telling us why developing and retaining a diverse workforce is important. We get it. The problem is, we don't know how to do it." Rising Together provides that missing how in full detail by identifying both what holds us back and specific tactics that can help us move forward. First, Sally identifies the eight common triggers most likely to undermine our ability to collaborate across divides--not only of gender, but also of age, ethnicity, race, sexuality, and life experience. These triggers are widespread, yet rarely acknowledged. They include differences in how people from different backgrounds view ambition, competence, perceptions, fairness, communication, networks, attraction, and humor. Sally then offers specific practices designed to address these triggers: simple behavioral tweaks that we can use on a daily basis; a method for informally enlisting allies to hold us to account; and a means for cultivating and disseminating the dynamic power of we."--Inside front jacket flap
