About the Book

'Engaging and informative … highlights our common humanity' Kofi Annan

‘A passionately written polemic' You Magazine

In troubling times, it's tempting to retreat to our comfort zones. To people just like us.

But what if actively seeking the unfamiliar was proven to be the key to a brighter future – both personally and for society
at large?

In this fierce, empowering call to arms, June Sarpong MBE puts the spotlight on groups who are often marginalised in our society, including women, those living with disabilities, and the LGBTQ community. Diversify uncovers how a new approach to how we work, learn and live can help us reach our maximum potential, lessen the pressure on the state, and solve some of the most stubborn challenges we face.

Drawing on new case studies – from shared parental leave, to flexible teaching methods, to communal living for pensioners and students – and with never-before published research from Oxford University, Diversify is an fierce and empowering guide to navigating a new way. And, alongside stellar research and inspiring stories are six simple and revolutionary exercises: the first steps on a journey to overcoming personal prejudice and reaping the huge rewards.

The old way isn't working.
This is a case for change.
