In Profiting from Diversity, Trevor Bentley and I offer a refreshing and innovative approach to recognising and embracing diversity within your organisation. Diversity has for too long been confused with, and compromised by, arguments for equal opportunities; this book makes the case for diversity as distinct and separate. It tackles the subject head-on, demonstrating the link between diversity and the bottom line and helping you to develop systems, attitudes and policies that form the basis of a culture of diversity.
