Book Description

Pushing for social change is a lifelong journey that requires learning and unlearning about lived experiences that differ from our own. This thought-provoking book discusses topics like privilege (Chapter 1); intersectional oppression (Ch. 2); the psychology of conscious and unconscious biases and how to act on them (Chs. 3 and 4). This book provides readers with actionable practices and guidelines to become advocates for social and institutional changes, including how to recognize and avoid common pitfalls in EDI practice (Ch. 5), and how to use inclusive language (Ch. 6). The book unfolds the meaning of effective allyship (Ch. 7), the importance of interrupting oppression (Ch. 8), and steps to operationalize our social justice actions (Ch. 9). Finally, the book positions accessibility in an EDI context and presents a broad selection of resources to aid readers in deepening their knowledge and understanding of EDI (Ch. 10).
