New Book: The Diversity Consultant Cookbook, Preparing for the Challenges
Written to advise how to get started in, and develop a career as, diversity consultants, this succinct cookbook provides the guidance to get you going and succeed.
The cookbook metaphor reflects the delicate nature of diversity consulting, where the little things can make a significant difference in the final outcome. As with cooking where a dash of seasoning, the choice of temperature, or cooking time can impact the final dish, so the wrong balance in creating a welcoming, contructive environment may be disorienting for the audience and can ruin a presentation before it gets started.
Like a cookbook, this book is presented in small chunks. It covers the need to audit, enhance your skills and knowledge, establish your brand and what you distinctively bring to the table, develop your outreach and contacts, and learn to listen to clients to determine what interventions will achieve their long-term goals. It addresses developing your strategic plan with a clear sense of mission, vision, and values; and moves on to topics such as financial planning, pricing, contracts, scheduling, and the specifics of marketing.
