A message from Michael Bach regarding his upcoming book,
Bird of All Feathers: Doing Diversity and Inclusion Right
"These are exceptional times. The video of George Floyd’s last 8 minutes and 46 seconds are etched into the mind of people around the world. His senseless death, along with the killing of others like Chantel Moore, Ahmaud Arbery, Breona Taylor and countless others, has led to a global demand for change, with a focus on the dismantling of the systemic racism that continues to see lives lost.
I wrote Birds of All Feathers as a call to action for employers on how they can create inclusive workplaces where all people are able to succeed. I was tired of excuses like “we don’t know where to start”. So now the answer to that questions is, “you start here!”
My book isn’t going to end racism. That is, at best, idealistic and at worst gross hubris. But it’s a start. In order for us to dismantle racism, we need employers to ensure they are creating safe spaces, where people can bring their whole self to work, and succeed. We have to start somewhere to ensure that George Floyd’s death is not in vain.
All lives won’t matter until #BlackLivesMatter."
