Book Details

Learn to be a leader who is not simply against racism, but one who actively does their part to facilitate diversity, equity, and inclusion as an anti-racist ally and advocate. It’s a simple fact that the people who oversee policy, government, sports, arts, and entertainment are most commonly white men. Another fact- We cannot achieve meaningful progress if we exclude the very people who have the power to make systemic change. This easy-to-read handbook is free of any attempts to shame or guilt you for the choices you made in the past or privileges you were born with. Instead, you’ll learn to view the work you do through a lens of racial equity so you can begin making changes today. In The Includers, Colette Phillips shares data and real-life stories, focusing on the steps to take, qualities to hone, and people to emulate to become an “includer.” By highlighting the experiences of real includers who have utilized their positions as leaders to fight for change, Phillips shows that this form of allyship isn’t just possible, it’s easy, sustainable, and necessary. For people with the power to make change, the first step is simply recognizing the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion for all of us. The second step means doing something to make it a reality–but many are stuck, with no idea how to begin in a way that will genuinely help. That’s where The Includers comes in.
