A solutions-oriented practical road map for anyone seeking to uproot entrenched biases in the workplace. Whether it's the composition of a company's leadership team or identifying the candidates that are a 'good fit' with the organisation, racial divisions play out as starkly in the workplace as they do in wider society. What can we do to eradicate bias and create a more diverse, inclusive and equitable environment? Social psychologist Robert Livingston has made it his life's work to show people how to turn difficult conversations about race into productive instances of real change. With wit and clarity, The Conversation distils Livingston's decades of research and practice into a solution-oriented road map for anyone seeking to uproot entrenched biases in the workplace. Founded on extensive data and blending psychology, sociology, management and behavioural economics, Livingston's framework reveals that racism can be defeated with the right information, incentives, strategy, and implementation. With vivid storytelling, The Conversation explores the root causes of racism, ways to foster greater empathy and solidarity and offers tangible steps to progress towards racial equality. It is the essential tool for turning well-intentioned diversity statements into measurable, achievable outcomes.
