In our quest to help you with your diversity education needs in every way we can think of, we have created the following publications. Check back often as we are in the process of producing other books and publications as fast as we can!
"Understanding Cultural Diversity in Today's Complex World"This is our first book which is now in its sixth revision, revised in 2021 to include George Floyd's murder and the Black Lives Matter movement. No one in this country is untouched by the impact of diversity. Yet, as diverse as diversity is, are too the many different emotions and attitudes evoked by diversity. As a nation, we are not well equipped to deal with the swirling transitions that are converging on us on a daily basis because of the nature of being the most diverse country in the world.
Suitable for individuals or groups, this book will well serve the purpose for many who decide to learn and teach the fundamentals of cultural diversity. It will be beneficial for adults, college students, high school juniors and seniors, and organizations whose ever-changing workforce leads to the necessity of educating employees on how to deal with the diversity of employees and customers in a positive manner. This timely publication is filled with current and relevant examples taken from pop culture: from TV shows, movies, song lyrics, and poetry of the times. These excerpts make this publication much more interesting and easy for the reader to relate to and understand.
"Diversity in the Real World" This book is a collection of 40 of Dr. Leo's "Eye on Diversity" columns in a local newspaper. He has been writing these columns since 2002.
