When Steve Long-Nguyen Robbins was growing up, his mother routinely told him, “Long, you walk on a path cleared by others, so it is your responsibility to clear the path for others.” Her insightful guidance and self-sacrificing example are the forces that drive Robbins’s corporate work around diversity and inclusion today.
His goal is unwavering: to clear the path for others and recruit more “path makers” – to honor his mother and to make a better world for everyone. In What If?, Robbins provides twenty-six inspiring, lively, and sometimes deeply personal stories illustrating diversity and inclusion concepts. He offers insight and practical advice on how to reconcile unity with diversity and reframe our organizations for competitive advantages. He adds tips and suggestions for putting keylearning into action in your organization, ending each chapter with questions, an activity, and an assignment to inspire you to be more open-minded and inclusive and to discover how the ideas presented in the book might apply to your daily life at work and at home.
