If I could make every employee in every company read this book, and every firm implement Susan Klopfer's recommendations, I would. That's how important this work is.

Klopfer shows why diversity is more than just following EEO and affirmative action laws and having a GLBT, Latino or Asian Employees' Association. Diversity also means that all employees are treated with respect and there is no workplace bullying.

Klopfer provides ways to examine whether a firm is managing diversity on more than the aforementioned superficial level, She also has an excellent appendix with more than just definitions of terms. For example, the entry on Islam talks about the history of the religion, the various sects and their beliefs and so on. There is some outstanding research in this book about issues ranging from mental illness and physical disability accommodations to ageism and a whole lot more.

Having worked at a place that believed diversity was limited to ethnicity or sexual orientation and no other co-culture, I can say from first-hand experience that a book like this is needed and should be welcomed by all companies who want to do more than pay lip service to its concepts.

Well-known workshop host, author, and speaker Susan Klopfer offers this interesting and informative book as an extension of her experience and abilities.

Her presentation of the impact of voluntarily managing and valuing diversity both in the workplace and in our lives has no connotations of negativity.

An interesting and worthwhile read.

A well deserved 5 STARS.

It just makes good sense!

Really glad I took the time to check out this book. As an educator I do feel responsible for teaching my students about diversity. This book offers great tools, from questionaires to an extensive glossary of terms. These are essential to creating a program at your place of work. I hope to provide a copy of this to every teacher who is involved with our program.

A good read, and an excellent tool for those who want to make things happen!
