  • Leading Diversity for Competitive Advantage: The Twelve Strategic Competencies

    Despite investing billions of dollars, the world’s institutions are making scant progress toward the promise of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The central cause: top leaders lack the means to construct and implement comprehensive diversity strategies that are responsive to the unique circumstances of the organizations they helm.


    Leading Diversity for Competitive Advantage: The Twelve Strategic Competencies provides the evidence-based strategic models, methods, tools, and templates that top leaders require to create equity and inclusion and drive sustainable diversity competitive advantage in talent and customer markets. Peter Linkow, who has devoted his career to the study and practice of diversity and business strategy, delivers the full range of competencies that top leaders need to guide their organizations to strategic diversity success.
