    In Unbiased Leadership, Tony Prophet, Chief Equality Officer of Salesforce, reveals simple but effective ways to supercharge your organization by going beyond diversity, beyond inclusivity, to true equality. He shows that when you create a workplace where everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed, you unleash the full power of your organization and everyone in it. Salesforce was named #1 on Fortune's "100 Best Places to Work For" list, and the company has been a leader in the push for diversity and equality in business. In his first-ever book, Prophet shares lessons from Salesforce and other companies who learned the power of leveling the playing field.Diversity has become a hot-button issue in the world of business, but true equality goes beyond simply diversifying your workforce. But that doesn't mean doing away with hierarchy-it simply means everyone has the chance to grow and climb the ranks. It's Prophet's belief that any business can foster true equality by creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels supported-and therefore able to succeed. And he shows how we all need to be on the frontlines of social change in our workplaces and communities.Through real-life anecdotes and examples, and his own compelling story, Prophet shows managers exactly how to achieve and foster equality-for the good of our businesses, employees, customers, and the world.A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press

    The people who do what I ask them to do in this course when I ask them to do it, will be the people that I see on the other side.
