Network Beyond Bias

Network Beyond Bias: Making Diversity a Competitive Advantage for Your Career will help you assess and improve the diversity of your professional network.

I based the book on four guiding principles:

  • Professional networking is critical for long-term career success. But we don’t readily recognize our default behaviors, nor are we aware of who is missing from our professional networks.
  • Many people are interested in the diversity and inclusion initiatives underway in their companies and industries, but don’t understand the role they can play.
  • The more connected we all are, the more opportunity we will create for ourselves and for each other.
  • Leaders can be anywhere, and should be everywhere – at all levels of an organization. Make no mistake: purposeful networking, building relationships on mutual trust, and considering multiple perspectives are all critical leadership skills.

Unique Approach

I don’t think we can ever talk enough about uncovering unconscious bias, effective networking, and working toward greater inclusion. In this book, Amy uses personal examples and simple language to continue the dialogue and get us into action. If you do nothing else, be sure to complete the networking exercise in Chapter 33. This unique approach will uncover gaps in your network that you never knew existed.

Groundbreaking and Eye-opening

Who is missing from my professional network?’ It’s a question I had never considered until reading Amy C. Waninger’s groundbreaking and eye-opening book. But it’s a question that gets to the heart of who I am ― professional and personally ― and how my own biases might be standing in my way of helping others, growing my company, and even catapulting my own career beyond my current aspirations and (self-inflicted) limitations. Network Beyond Bias is a book whose time has come ― a book that will improve teams, open doors, broaden careers, and bring a healthy dose of strategy, humanity, and perspective to the way readers think about the work they do, the hands they shake, and the success they achieve. Bravo to Amy C. Waninger for writing a book that’s not just ‘beyond bias’ but also beyond our greatest expectations for how a book on diversity and inclusion can be as inspiring as it is practical.

Highly Recommend!

I would highly recommend Amy C. Waninger’s book, Network Beyond Bias: Making Diversity a Competitive Advantage in Your Career. The book does a super job of integrating the importance of diversity and inclusion with the “who’s and how’s” of networking. The premise is by having a diverse group of connections it expands possibilities and offers more innovative ideas.  Amy drives home the power of a diverse network and offers suggestions to overcome perceived barriers when getting to know individuals who may be different from oneself.

The book is an easy read and is filled with useful information including a tool to assess and measure the diversity of an individual’s network.   Real scenarios of diverse challenges provide the reader the opportunity to explore a variety of perspectives.  The content included in the chapter, Seek Diverse Perspectives on Purpose, covers important facts about some of the most challenging and timely dimensions of diversity and inclusion.

Because Amy shares some personal information and challenges she has experienced, after reading her book, I was left with the feeling of having a good sense of who she is and the value of what she brings to the field of diversity and inclusion.
