Open this book, open your mind, and climb out of your box. This field guide tackles workplace diversity with startling candor and delivers refreshingly practical solutions for individuals and groups. Youíll encounter provocative questions that stretch your thinking and lead to surprising new insights about the assumptions that drive your behavior.

Before you can cultivate truly effective partnerships, there is some essential groundwork you must do on your own. This guide will show you how to move from low collaboration to high collaboration. Of course, the other part of the equation is understanding others. In this book youíll learn about the unconscious attitudes that govern the ways white men do Ė and donít Ė participate in diversity efforts. Youíll even discover why itís difficult for white women and people of color to see what white men really know about diversity. (Hint: white men are people, too.) Consider this guide required reading for all white women and people of color who want to work more effectively with white men and others.
