"This is an unreasonable manifesto. It's unreasonable because it challenges us to take responsibility, to be kind, to dig in, and to change the invisible corners of our culture. We've got work to do. Unreasonable is precisely what we need."
-Seth Godin, author of This is Marketing

"In my work, I have seen how Black people, especially young Black women, are frequently excluded by 'well-intentioned' people. Some of the exclusions are not subtle at all, but many of them are. The subtle ones are especially insidious and pervasive and hard to fight back against. This book skillfully uses stories and research to build a deep understanding that may actually be able to take something negative and turn it into an opportunity to productively come together and create more support, trust, and equity. Now that's a feat! Jana and Baran have found a way to give shape and depth to a topic that is difficult to grasp and difficult to speak up about because of its subtlety. But more than that, they have provided a language that we can all use to actually have open and productive conversations about topics that have become incredibly divisive. I can see applications of this framework not just for work but for higher education and beyond."
-Aimee Meredith Cox, PhD, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of African American Studies, and Associate Professor, Departments of Anthropology and African American Studies, Yale University, and author of Shapeshifters

"Tiffany Jana and Michael Baran have provided us a powerful tool to help us learn about how subtle forms of bias can profoundly impact people's sense of belonging and their ability to perform at the highest level. Through thoughtful research and powerful examples, they have not only brilliantly articulated the problem but also offered us a pathway to a solution. Kudos!"
-Howard Ross, author of ReInventing Diversity, Everyday Bias, and Our Search for Belonging

"This book should open the floodgates for people to tell their own stories of being subtly excluded at work, with a new language that will make it so much easier to address out in the open and create teachable moments. As a little person, I have experienced so many subtle acts of exclusion over my career, whether it's people telling me I look 'cute' or having to constantly fight for respect and validity. I wish every one of my colleagues over the years had been able to read this book!"
-Becky Curran Kekula, Director, Disability Equality Index, Disability:IN
