    "This seminal collection is a must-read for all of us who are committed to understanding what it takes to move toward the equitable social environments we have to create in our workplaces if they are to thrive in the turbulent years ahead."


    Stew Friedman, organizational psychologist at Wharton and author of Total Leadership

    "Kossek and Lee have thoughtfully – and finally – elevated the discussion on gender equality and inclusion. In bringing together both academia and practitioners to begin to address the persistent barriers to translating research to outcomes, their approach models the strength and success that comes from including diverse talent and perspectives to achieve progress."


    Barbara Soria, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Capital Group

    "This book provides extremely valuable actionable insights and practical strategies for managers and organizations that are seeking to significantly improve the implementation of existing and new diversity initiatives to foster gender inclusion. The pairing of organizational leaders and a leading researcher on current gender-inclusion topics from climate to mentoring to STEM offers a fresh perspective on diversity and inclusion to truly move the needle on gender and inclusion."


    Michàlle Mor Barak, Department of Social Work & Business, University of Southern California

    "At last, Creating Gender-Inclusive Organizations delivers an invaluable resource that integrates evidence-based best practices and imminently practical, immediately actionable strategies that can measurably improve diversity and deliver on its promise of innovation and breakthrough thinking. This must-read book should be on the desk of every CEO, board member, HR department lead, and manager serious about making real transformation."


    Brigid Schulte, author of Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time, award-winning journalist, and director of the Better Life Lab at New America

    "Kossek and Lee’s Creating Gender-Inclusive Organizations is the book we need right now. Based on decades of social scientific research and careful observations of major companies, the book offers resources for organizations, teams, and individuals for leading change. The book leads us out of the dark ages, through the #MeToo movement, and into a future that values and leverages the experiences and expertise of all workers, women and men."


    Mary Blair-Loy, Department of Sociology, UC San Diego, and Director, Center for Research on Gender in STEMM
