Our August Book Club selection, available for purchase through McNally Jackson is:

"Finally: an engaging, evidence-based book about how to battle biases, champion diversity and inclusion, and advocate for those who lack power and privilege. Dolly Chugh makes a convincing case that being an ally isn’t about being a good person—it’s about constantly striving to be a better person.”
— Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of
Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg
 
“Dolly Chugh helps us identify our ‘platform of privilege’ and guides us on how we can use this and other tools to create positive change. She encourages us to accentuate our strengths and to manage our weaknesses, and forces us to focus on being better and stronger in everything we do.”
— Billie Jean King, social justice pioneer and tennis champion
 
“Dolly Chugh has written the most important and actionable book on reducing bias that I have read. Using powerful and enduring findings from research on bias, she explains the reasons we fail to be the person we mean to be and provides prescriptions for managing the pitfalls of our humanness. This deeply personal book is a must-read.”
— David Thomas, president of Morehouse College and
author of Leading for Equity and Breaking Through
