From the perspective of an Australian Muslim I have found Lenora’s book to be jam packed with gems that help demystify the notion that diversity is complex. Lenora has managed to unpack the multiples issues surrounding diversity such as stereotyping, disability, behaviour, culture, beliefs, values and much more.
Lenora has provided simple and real examples to highlight people are different and knowledge, acceptance and change are required to achieve positive results through diversity advantage.
