Celebrated Equity Strategist and Author Releases Compelling Book Designed to Drive Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace

In recent years, DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) initiatives have taken a national spotlight as organizations of all sizes aim to tackle workplace equity. Leaders are looking for ways to make lasting change within their organizations. Frank helps these leaders achieve their goals by presenting a compelling case for change while providing practical guidance on how to thoughtfully facilitate it.

“A Waymaker is a leader who uses their power and position to help others succeed. Historically-excluded persons who have accessed higher levels of professional belonging and achievement have succeeded not due to systemic changes alone, but because of leaders who chose to remove barriers, open doors, and guide them toward their goals,” said Frank. “Waymakers are leaders who find ways to change processes and norms and unlock opportunity quickly for others.”

Using case studies, data, and candid storytelling, The Waymakers outlines how leaders with power and position can clear the path to workplace equity by:

  • discovering where they are on their equity journey today
  • embracing the steps required to achieve true equity
  • understanding what their employees really want
  • developing a lens for the big barriers and intervention opportunities
  • connecting the dots between meeting talent needs and unlocking company value
  • recognizing when Waymaking matters most
  • showing up—every day—as a leader who makes a way.
