It turns out that the warm, let's-all-get-along connotations of inclusion are misleading. Achieving true inclusion is hard. Very hard. Harder than achieving awareness. Harder than achieving tolerance and sensitivity. Harder than diversity itself. In The Inclusion Paradox: The Obama Era and the Transformation of Global Diversity Andrés Tapia, Hewitt Associates' Chief Diversity Officer, reveals how in these times of unprecedented peril and opportunity, diversity's demographic tsunami is accelerating today's social, economic, and political tectonic shifts. In the book, he explores what is required to move into the next generation of diversity work in ways that get past the tired and clichéd approaches. He makes the case for making inclusion relevant for all, including the white male, and breaks ground by challenging the notion that the melting pot leads to inclusion. On the contrary, Tapia makes the case that "equality" often does not equal "same." The Inclusion Paradox also focuses on the cultural implications of the Obama Era in the United States and around the world. More than a political point in time, the Obama Era is a cultural marker that succinctly captures the various global trends converging at this time in history.
The Inclusion Paradox will enable readers to contribute strategically and practically to the urgent work of making diversity and inclusion relevant to business and organizational success around the world.

About the Author:

Andrés Tapia is a Senior Client Partner and Global Practice Leader for Korn Ferry’s Workforce Performance, Inclusion and Diversity Practice.

Andrés has been one of the leading voices in shaping a contemporary, next-generation approach to diversity and inclusion. The approach is global, deeply integrated into talent systems, and focused on enabling marketplace success. He has over 25 years of experience as a C-suite management consultant, diversity executive, organizational development and training professional, and journalist. Andrés joined Korn Ferry from Diversity Best Practices, a diversity and inclusion think-tank and consultancy, where he acted as President and was responsible for the organization’s overall vision, strategy, and outcomes. Prior to his tenure there, he acted as Chief Diversity Officer and Emerging Workforce Solutions Leader for Hewitt Associates and was responsible for shaping and leading that organization’s internal diversity transformation as well as its diversity consultancy.

Throughout Europe, Asia, North America, and his native Latin America, Andrés has served clients in shaping their enterprise-wide diversity and inclusion business cases and strategies across industries—including financial, healthcare, retail, manufacturing, government, not-for-profits, and education—with dozens of Global 500 organizations headquartered in the US, Brazil, South Korea, Switzerland, Italy, and India, such as John Deere, Marriott, United Airlines, Target, Cigna, CJ, Tata, Barilla, and Roche.

Andrés is a globally sought-after speaker on the topic of diversity and inclusion. He has been published in major dailies throughout the US and Latin America primarily through his writing for the New America Media wire service as well as the Huffington Post. He is the recipient of numerous leadership and diversity awards and has served on a number of boards, including currently serving on the editorial board of Diversity Executive magazine, the corporate advisory board for the Bentley University Center for Women and Business, and the Ravinia Arts Festival.

Andrés received a bachelor’s degree in modern history from Northwestern University in the Chicago area with an emphasis in journalism and political science. He grew up in a bilingual/bicultural home in Lima, Perú. He is married to Lori, a musician, and they have an adult daughter, Marisela, who is a professional flamenco dancer.

Review:

"Andrés Tapia has become one of the foremost thought leaders in the area of workplace diversity. His unique perspectives on inclusion have shifted the paradigm on how leaders now think about diversity."

--John W. Rogers, Chairman and CEO, Ariel Investments
"Andrés Tapia brings a unique combination of personal and professional experience to the subjects of cultural diversity and inclusion. His insights and approach can help a company strive toward achieving an inclusive environment in which a richly diverse global workforce can thrive."

--Robert W. Lane, chairman, Deere & Company
"The Inclusion Paradox is a must-read for all who want to keep ahead of the forces of change. Andrés has focused his keen mind on the most critical issues that are creating global societal change today."

--Carol Evans, CEO, Working Mother Media and Diversity Best Practices
"An insightful and thoughtful analysis by an insightful and thoughtful leader in the field. Andrés captures the essence of the challenges facing global institutions in the 21st century and offers a path to success and sustainability."

--Gilbert F. Casellas, Vice President, Corporate Responsibility, Dell. Inc. and former Chairman, U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Opportunity Commission
"Andrés Tapia has emerged as a rising star in business strategy. In The Inclusion Paradox, Tapia challenges us to call out our differences as a critical step to achieve inclusion. This book is a call to action. The megatrends are identified. The sustainable strategies are defined. The probing questions are outlined. Tapia equips the reader to lead change rather than be the victim of it. I recommend it to executives who are serious about being competitive by embracing and leveraging diversity."

--Gloria Castillo, President, Chicago United
