About the book: The reviews are in!
 

"Inclusive AF" is an actionable, practical, and—above all—relatable roadmap for the beginner advocate searching for ways to authentically plug into the DEI conversation. Using engaging anecdotes and her own personal triumphs and tribulations, Jen O’Ryan proves that creating widespread culture shifts is a long but ultimately rewarding journey, and that we all know something about diversity at our very core.

"Reading this guide feels like finding that endearingly quirky expert who explains the complicated science in hero movies. Imagine having that character explain inclusion and diversity. I am more comfortable leading Inclusion and Diversity efforts with this book in hand. "
 

~ Mia Rella, Finance professional, Bank of America Merrill

"Inclusive AF unpacks in a clear, direct way the neuroscience and sociological dimensions of encountering difference in the workplace. The reader will gain a deeper understanding of what has shaped the lives of the LGBTQ+ people they meet both in regular life and, in particular, at work. This is an essential handbook for how to create a welcoming and sustainable work environment in which LGBTQ+ employees can thrive. "

~ Pierre Bradette, LGBTQ+ Community Activist and Management Consultant

 

​"I love Inclusive AF! This book is REAL, outshining other, sometimes dull books written in a monochrome business style. It's like sitting down with Dr. O'Ryan for a coffee. As an Inclusion & Diversity professional, I would have loved this book at the start of my journey, and highly recommend it to everyone on the path."
