The End of Diversity as We Know it: Why Diversity Efforts Fail and How Leveraging Difference Can Succeed

Martin Davidson


The idea for this book came to Martin Davidson during a disarmingly honest conversation with a CEO he worked with. ''Look,'' the executive said, clearly troubled. ''I know we can get a diverse group of people around the table. But so what? What difference does it really make to getting bottom-line results?'' Answering the ''so what?'' led Davidson to explore more deeply how companies typically manage diversity. He saw there were serious problems. Companies weren't effectively building diversity into their larger business strategy. Also, the emphasis on common differences like gender, age, race, and sexual orientation was inter- fering with the ability to identify less obvious differences that have more impact on a business. And traditional diversity efforts were often hindering the professional development of the very people they were designed to help. In his book, Davidson explains how what he calls Leveraging DifferenceTM turns persistent diversity problems into solutions that drive business results.
