authors@mit presents “Diversity Dividend” (In-person)

November 2, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

From entry-level to the boardroom, what works to create large-scale change in organizations looking to accelerate their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts and reap financial benefits.

Every leader endeavors to invest in and manage their key asset—talent—to be as high-performing as possible. Like a winning stock, successful diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) actions pay back over time. That dividend is paid both to the company—through not only higher performance but also talent acquisition, training, and other savings—and to society in general. In Diversity Dividend, Paola Cecchi-Dimeglio offers a fresh, detailed look at how to realize gender and racial equity along the company-employee pathway—from attracting and interviewing applicants to onboarding, promoting, and sustaining hires—and how to remove systemic barriers at the organizational level that prevent women and underrepresented groups from advancing.

Copies of Diversity Dividend will be available for purchase on site from the MIT Press Bookstore.

Paola will be in conversation with Amy Edmondson, Professor of Leadership & Management, Harvard Business School; author of Right Kind of Wrong: The Science of Failing Well.
