What People are Saying

"Moving Diversity Forward, a fabulous read, is a revealing, comprehensive and practical diversity guide. Vernã's voice is compelling and opens the door to a deeper understanding of self and others as we look through a diversity lens."

-- Barbara L. Becker, Partner & Chair Global Diversity Committee, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP

"If you believe that your organization has done everything it can to enhance its diversity, and if you are still frustrated at how little progress you have made, Moving Diversity Forward is for you. It is an instructive read for all of those who wish to live and work in a multi-cultural world where everyone has a fair chance to succeed and contribute."

-- Frank P. Barron, Chief Legal Officer, Morgan Stanley

"The numerous publications about diversity render it difficult to offer a new perspective, but Vernã Myers has done so. Moving Diversity Forward takes head on underlying challenges to successful diversity and inclusion efforts that often are left unspoken-and she has done so without being inflammatory."

-- William A. Von Hoene, Jr., Executive Vice President, Finance and Legal, Exelon Corporation

"The promise of this book is in the title-how to go from well-meaning to well-doing. If that is your goal, Moving Diversity Forward is for you! Myers delivers on her promise with a great blend of accessible theory and tools for practical application that can benefit any reader willing to learn."

-- Beverly Daniel Tatum, Ph.D., President, Spelman College; author of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?

"Diversity isn't rocket science. It's harder than that. Attorney Vernã Myers has written a pathway to address the issues of diversity, and to make sure we have those difficult conversations."

-- Charles J. Ogletree, Professor of Law, Harvard Law School and Executive Director, Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race & Justice

"If you, like me, are a white male who believes in inclusion but sometimes feels on shaky ground in how to achieve it, this book is for you. Ms. Myers reveals the unconscious biases that inhibit inclusion, debunks the well-meaning but misguided arguments often used against inclusion, and provides clear and concrete steps we can take to move from well-meaning to well-doing."

-- Mark E. (Rick) Richardson, VP & Associate General Counsel, GlaxoSmithKline

"In Moving Diversity Forward, Vernã Myers has written a much-needed handbook for those who are committed to tackling the problem of diversifying our law firms. The writing is crisp and intelligent. The advice is of substance. I highly recommend it."

-- Harold J. McElhinny, Managing Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
