Demanding More - Why Diversity and Inclusion Doesn't Happen and What You Can Do About It | Sheree AtchesonLook around you. Is your workplace as diverse and accepting as it should be?

From accusations of racism in high political office, award-winning actors admitting the sets they work on aren’t inclusive, to everyday occurrences of sexism, agism, racism and more, we are far from where we need to be.

Demanding More is THE diversity and inclusion book you need to read. Moving beyond HR speak, this book clearly explains what diversity and inclusion are and what it means in the everyday experience of millions of people, both at work and in life. Sheree Atcheson, Global Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Peakon and ex Monzo, draws on her experience as a young woman of colour in an overly white male tech environment; she lives and breathes the issues she writes about. In Demanding More, she calls out the lack of awareness around privilege, unchecked and unconscious biases and details what intersectionality does to feelings of discrimination and disadvantage.

Arguing that the best strategy for us all to adopt is allyship, where we all take ownership of the issues and stand up to bias or discrimination, this book will give us all tools and strategies to action every day, making us accountable to delivering change around us.
