The Diversity Dilemma is a no-holds-barred account of the impact of diversity work on society, culture, community, and souls. With more than 25 years of experience working with Fortune 500 companies, human resources expert Dr. Thelá Thatch explores the damage done to people and organizational culture over the past two decades — all in the name of diversity.
Thatch writes from the center of the DEI dilemma — where efforts to correct glaring issues simultaneously clash with the painful consequences of exposing them. This deep dive investigates whether the spotlight on DEI has truly moved the needle forward or further polarized and exacerbated preexisting diversity and inclusion issues.
Dedicated to diversity leaders, employee resource groups, human resource professionals, and employees from all backgrounds who have given their all for the sake of equity and inclusion, The Diversity Dilemma is both a challenge and an encouragement to anyone who is looking to affect real, lasting change towards greater diversity and inclusion.
With over twenty years of human resources experience, Dr. Thelá Thatch provides change management experience that has been successfully implemented across various industries.
