'Engaging and informative ... highlights our common humanity' Kofi Annan `A passionately written polemic' You Magazine
REVIEWS
`Engaging and informative ... June Sarpong examines the research behind diversity and discrimination while grounding them in personal narratives, highlighting our common humanity.' Kofi Annan, co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize `I am so glad June Sarpong is working on this matter of diversity. We don't seem to know how to handle differences. When will we learn that we share one common humanity as Shakespeare's Shylock declared so eloquently?' Desmond Tutu `My experiences during the Holocaust has led me on a lifetime mission to promote the benefits of diversity ... telling my story and that of my step-sister Anne Frank and why civil society must do all it can to protect and celebrate our diversity. Diversify helps us take the first steps on the journey to tolerance.' Eva Schloss MBE "A passionately written polemic" You Magazine `How boring would life be without diversity? A case of the bland leading the bland. Life would be pretty ... dull without [my autistic son's] literal, lateral, tangential take on the world ... Mozart, Orwell, Van Gough, Warhol and many other amazing artists, scientists and musicians were on the autistic spectrum. And yet only 15% of autistic people are in the workforce. If only we would learn to think outside the neurotypical box' Kathy Lette `An engaging read with lots of important and good ideas' Stylist `May prove to be our handbook to negotiate these troubled times' Psychologies
