John Pepper, who now heads Procter & Gamble, and his predecessor Edwin Artzt have made the Cincinnati-based consumer products giant an industry leader in promoting and practicing workplace diversity. Hankins has worked as a manager at Procter & Gamble for 25 years and conducted training seminars all over the U.S. Authors of several recent books about the challenges of managing a diverse workforce have suggested that attempting to change a person's beliefs about race and about those who may be different may be fruitless. They suggest that managers, instead, should focus on appropriate behavior rather than inappropriate attitudes. Hankins attacks the issue head-on. The problem, she counters, is prejudice; prejudices must be addressed, she goes on to warn. While focusing on the problems faced by women and minority males, Hankins confirms that workplace prejudice and discrimination continue to exist. At the same time, she acknowledges the concerns of white males and charts the role of senior managers in battling racism and sexism on the job. David Rouse
