At a critical juncture where the principles of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are challenged by resistance, fueled by ignorance and fear, Omar L. Harris introduces a beacon of hope: the J.E.D.I. Leader’s Playbook. This revolutionary toolkit, far from being just a guide, is designed to breathe new life into faltering J.E.D.I. initiatives.

Crafted by visionaries who view J.E.D.I. as both a culture and a movement, rather than a mere program, the playbook delivers transformative frameworks and actionable insights. It empowers individuals at all levels of an organization, from entry-level employees to C-suite executives, to become catalysts for meaningful change. By addressing the shortcomings of traditional DEI approaches, the playbook disarms skeptics, reignites executive support, and offers a comprehensive strategy to overcome burnout, shifting the narrative from resistance to enlightenment, from division to unity.
