In It's Time to Talk about Race at Work, Kelly McDonald delivers a much-needed roadmap for businesspeople. This book will help you successfully create a fair and equitable workplace that recognizes diverse talent and fosters productive and constructive conversations in your organization.

Instead, this book shows you exactly what to do and how to do it so that you can make real progress on diversity and inclusion, regardless of the size of your organization. The author's clear, “real talk” style makes it easy to learn: the costs and risks you're incurring if your organization lacks diversity; how people who don't consider themselves to be racist may still have diversity blind spots; how to start the hard conversations you may not know how to approach; the STARTING Method—an eight-step framework that shows you how to ensure your diversity and inclusion efforts are effective; how to recognize the excuses people use to avoid taking action on diversity and inclusion; and more.
