Crystal Byrd Farmer offers no-nonsense advice for all well-meaning people leading progressive organizations who acknowledge the need for diversity but don't know where to start.
With a blunt style that pulls no punches, the author tells it how it is, calling out tokenism, while extending a hand to help organizations make real transformative change toward diversity and inclusion.
