Groundbreaking Diversity Series and Research Released
by Dr. John Fitzgerald Gates, the Nation’s #1 Thought Leader in Strategic Diversity
NEW YORK, N.Y., May 29, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Criticality Management Consulting announces today that it is releasing the groundbreaking Strategic Diversity series from Dr. John Fitzgerald Gates, Ph.D., America’s most insightful and transformational diversity thought-leader. Dr. Gates is blazing new trails in the practice of Diversity & Inclusion. He leads the Strategic Diversity Management Movement, which places diversity in the realm of organizational strategy rather than human resources as a lever to improve business performance.
According to Dr. Gates: “Any organization that sees diversity as simply about human difference is woefully behind the curve. Diversity is an expression of excellence, which shows up as the differences, similarities, complexities and tensions that can be found in any complex situation, task, decision, group, or person. Accordingly, a Strategic Diversity paradigm includes everyone and everything.”
His groundbreaking research and thought leadership series, “STRATEGY: The Evolution of Diversity and Inclusion Thought and Practice,” is changing the way major corporations understand diversity. The series features Dr. Gates’ two decades of research and practice in the field of Strategic Diversity as well as the commentary of diversity executives from 20 leading companies, sports franchises, and nonprofit organizations. The STRATEGY series has been heralded as the authoritative word on contemporary diversity management.
