"This book exposes one of mentoring's biggest blind spots--mentors and mentees who assume similarity rather than difference--and provides insightful and practical advice for how to mentor and be mentored across all forms of diversity. A vital addition to the diversity and inclusion and mentoring field."
--Andres T. Tapia, Senior Client Partner and Global Diversity and Inclusion Strategist, Korn Ferry, and author of The Inclusion Paradox

"Successful mentoring relationships must be authentic and inclusive. This practical hands-on guide to better mentoring by mentoring experts Fain and Zachary is not to be missed by anyone who wants to learn how to build deeper and more meaningful bridges across, under, and through difference."
--Marshall Goldsmith, Thinkers50 #1 Executive Coach for ten years and New York Times #1 bestselling author of Triggers, Mojo, and What Got You Here Won't Get You There "Mentoring is one of the more powerful tools in the inclusion toolbox. It is increasingly vital that we share privilege across differences in service of breaking down systemic bias. This book offers valuable insight and practical guidance on becoming a trusted inclusion ally and effective mentor."
--Dr. Tiffany Jana, coauthor of Overcoming Bias, Erasing Institutional Bias, and Subtle Acts of Exclusion "Fain and Zachary, luminaries in the mentoring field, deliver the definitive applied toolbox for genuinely inclusive mentorship. Any leader committed to recruiting, retaining, and promoting diverse talent should personally hand a copy to every mentor and mentee in the organization."
--W. Brad Johnson, PhD, Professor of Psychology, US Naval Academy, and Faculty Associate, Johns Hopkins University
