The Power of Difference: Where the complexities of diversity and inclusion meet practical solutions by Simon Fanshawe.

Good intentions are not enough - real diversity is about change. The Power of Difference explains why it's our differences and how we combine them that create true diversity and generate innovation, fresh thinking and, ultimately, success.

With humour and precision, Simon Fanshawe brings together his own experiences and the latest research to explain why inclusion is more than just being nice to people, why unconscious bias training isn't the fix we need and why listening to all individuals voices, not assuming that one viewpoint represents a group, is key. 

Offering insight, analysis and practical solutions, The Power of Difference is a must-read. Exploring how to confront bias, question assumptions and avoid generalisations, this book illustrates why diversity should be part of the overall business strategy, not separate from it. It shows how we must create spaces that are safe for disagreement, not from disagreement, in order for innovation and diversity to flourish. Written in an engaging  and practical style, this book courageously tackles some of the most significant issues at work today.
