Looking carefully at how current leaders view the relationship between top tier management and diverse groups, Opening Doors to Diversity in Leadership examines recruitment selection, performance evaluation, workplace succession, working conditions, and corporate culture and how they impact hiring, promotion, and retention of diverse groups.
Using a psychological, organizational, and cultural framework Opening Doors to Diversity in Leadership will help businesses integrate a more diverse presence in leadership, Emphasizing the interlocking relationship between our thoughts and actions, this book stresses the importance of organizational review and self-reflection as well as the pivotal role of removing unconscious biases from the workplace and identifying the systemic biases embedded in many aspects of human resources management practices.

"Opening Doors to Diversity in Leadership is not just a book that looks into the deepest crevasse of societal oppression; it takes the opportunity to explore the root causes, attitudes, and prejudices that undermine marginalized groups and lead to systemic disadvantages in the workplace. This book acts as a highly valuable guidepost for anyone interested in being part of a solution-oriented organization or those just looking to gain a better understanding of the impact of systemic oppression on marginalized communities. I strongly recommend that anyone who is compelled toward leadership, in a leadership role, or can act as an agent of change should be introduced to this text as the insights provided and the comprehensive overview shared paint a thorough picture of societal norms and leaves just enough a silver lining for the reader to believe that true corporate and societal change is possible."
