“Honest and disarming…this book’s framework is both original and needed.”
– Mahzarin R. Banaji, Harvard University
In Deep Diversity, award-winning racial justice educator Shakil Choudhury explores the emotionally loaded topic of racism using a compassionate, scientific approach that everyone can easily understand.
With clear language and engaging stories that will appeal to readers of Brené Brown and Malcom Gladwell, Choudhury explains how and why well-intentioned people can perpetuate systems of oppression, often unconsciously. Using a trauma-informed approach that removes shame or blame, he offers us the tools to recognize, take authentic responsibility, and enact deep change. In easy-to-absorb chapters, Choudhury interweaves research into the brain and studies on human behavior with hard-won lessons from his career of helping organizations and CEOs create more inclusive environments. He models vulnerability and mistake-making, sharing examples of his own bias-missteps so readers are encouraged into their own racial justice journey without judgment.
Many are calling Deep Diversity a “breakthrough book” on race, meeting you where you’re at, regardless of your identity, class, ability, or belief system, and inviting you to come along on a journey of self-discovery, social awareness, and lifelong learning.
