Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI): A Practical Guide provides readers with an effective model for fostering DEI within a variety of contexts, including education, corporate settings, nonprofit agencies, social organizations, and more. It equips any grouping of individuals with a desire to advance issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion with the ability to clearly articulate their goals and then strategically move toward them.

Each of the chapters within this brief and accessible volume outlines a specific step within the greater DEI model: identifying the area of DEI to be addressed; articulating intended outcomes; identifying metrics of changes; listing and securing the resources needed to achieve expected outcomes; deciding upon an entity or individual who will be accountable for the change process; and establishing a clear timeline. Throughout, examples illuminate the material and bring the spirit of the model to life.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is an excellent and timely resource, whether for individuals and organizations who are new to concepts and processes related to DEI, or those who have experience but want to take their practices to the next level.
