Diversity Playbook offers a unique opportunity to gain a sneak peek into the world of the other. Michelle R. Loyd Paige and Michelle D. Williams note that many diversity efforts fail simply because organizations don’t share a common language as they talk about diversity. Building on their years of experience in Christian higher education, Loyd-Paige and Williams share pitfalls to avoid and plans that can extend God’s ministry of reconciliation to everyone. Their work will help your organization become better at changing hearts and broadening minds.
