The Loudest Duck

Laura A. Liswood

Overview

Successful diversity inclusion is more than checking off a box. A modern workplace requires a revamped approach, uplifting different perspectives and directly combatting microaggressive behavior.

Laura Liswood is the Secretary General at the Council of Women World Leaders and an advisor in Global Leadership and Diversity. In The Loudest Duck, Liswood provides managers with the tools necessary to examine workplace behavior and oftentimes overlooked discriminatory patterns.

The book's title is based on a Chinese parable with the lesson that 'the loudest duck gets shot.' Liswood argues against the lesson, encouraging marginalized employees to reclaim their power and bring their ideas to the table. The guide also provides managers with suggestions on how to facilitate difficult workplace discussions while curating a safe space.

"If you want to create more diversity, you can't just play the numbers game. You have to shape the attitudes and tendencies of people in the organization, from the top down and the bottom up."
