Companies must listen to, understand, and internalize the experiences of a diverse workforce. Doing so will help them analyze their practices to ensure some employees aren't allowed to 'fail upward' while others have to move mountains for a shot at getting ahead.

Introduction

Creating an inclusive workplace requires asking difficult questions. Hiring a few BIPOC and LGTBQ+ workers to check off a 'diversity' box does not constitute an effectively inclusive work environment. Companies must listen to their employees to better understand what they can do to combat discrimination in the workplace.

Legal and operations tech executive Bärí A. Williams has made it her mission to help companies with their diversity and inclusion efforts. In her book, Diversity in the Workplace: Eye-Opening Interviews to Jumpstart Conversations about Identity, Privilege, and Bias, Williams highlights the roles race, gender, sexuality, age, and religion play in the workspace.

Through exploring 25 original interviews with business leaders from underrepresented groups, along with her own takeaways, Williams aims to show readers the importance of a truly progressive and diverse workplace.
