Is your professional network as diverse as the workforce and community around you? If not, you could be missing important opportunities for your career. We all face challenges in making meaningful connections, especially with people who differ from us in significant ways. Few of us consider the impacts of these missed connections. Even fewer know how to recognize and overcome them.
This book will help you assess and improve the breadth and depth of your professional network so you can remove the artificial barriers that may be keeping you from your next mentor, star hire, or big customer.
Are you ready to transform your career, one relationship at a time?

Strongly recommended for early- and mid-career professionals!
I strongly recommend this book to professionals starting out their careers and those in the middle of their careers. Amy gives practical suggestions in expanding your working network and how nobody should be excluded, both above you and below you on the food chain.
In five years after reading this book and incorporating her insights, you will see how her wisdom will have paid you preferred dividends.

Anonymous Amazon review
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.
