Equity - How to Design Organizations Where Everyone Thrives, by Minal Bopaiah, forward by Johnnetta Betsch Cole

Equity can be a controversial and polarizing concept, mainly because it is misunderstood. But in this easy-to-read book, Minal Bopaiah makes a hard concept easy to understand with great storytelling and language your mom would understand.

Even the most passionate advocates for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) have been known to treat equity as the middle child – the concept they skip over in order to get to the warm, fuzzy feelings of inclusion. But equity is critical if we want progress to stick!

Discover why a commitment to equity doesn’t require abandoning equality, and how to communicate your equitable initiatives in a way that unifies instead of divides!

“Minal Bopaiah’s book is a succinct jewel. Anyone who wants to better understand inclusion, diversity and equity, as well as paths toward reaching these goals organizationally—and personally—would benefit from reading it. My thinking has been broadened by reading it and I know I’ll refer to it many times in the future.”

Jody Williams, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

A fast and engaging read, Equity probes the unconscious biases that blind us to seeing systems, making explicit what is often unseen. The book opens with the story of how Minal’s parents and the socialized education they received in India allowed them to come to America and find employment immediately. Her ability to tell her family’s origin story with a systems lens reveals the bias of the U.S. immigration system that fed the myth of Asians as a “model minority” – offering readers a deeper understanding of how Asians have been used to prop up systemic inequality.

Hailed as “an elegantly-written skeleton key,” this book is a must-have for anyone passionate about making real, systemic change!

“In our quest for inclusion and belonging, this book will serve as one of the sharpest tools in any DEI leader and practitioner’s toolkit.”

Katie Oertli Mooney, Head of Diversity Best Practices
