The truth is that all historically excluded professionals who have broken through to greater levels of belonging and achievement have succeeded not by systems change alone, but because influential leaders chose to remove barriers, open doors, and guide them toward their goals. The bottom line? Someone made a way for them.
Using case studies, data, and evocative storytelling, Frank outlines how leaders with power and position can clear the path to workplace equity.
The Waymakers not only makes a compelling case for change. It also teaches you how to facilitate that change. Once you’ve read it, you’ll understand why the question is not “what” drives equity and inclusion, but “who.”
And the answer is you.
The insights and strategies found in this book are not only substantiated by Frank’s professional experience, both as a corporate executive and C-Suite consultant, but also by secondary research, interviews with thirty equity and inclusion experts from Fortune 500 companies and leading consultancies, and by a proprietary study conducted in partnership with Brandtrust.
The proprietary research revealed a deeper, more dimensional view of the underrepresented employee experience, zeroing in on the moments that matter – those critical experiences that either draw an employee closer to an organization or leader, or drive them away. This book will help every reader understand what’s really happening in organizations – an unfiltered view of what enables equity, what derails it, and how leaders can adapt their behaviors to create the cultures they say they want.
Building on this real-world window into career highs and lows, The Waymakers will offer a pragmatic, time-tested and human-centric path to equity.
