In Inclusive AF: A Field Guide for Accidental Diversity Experts, Dr. Jen O’Ryan offers a three-part roadmap for anyone implementing inclusion and diversity initiatives in the workplace: how to launch projects from the initial concept to post-delivery activities, lead people through cultural change, and design inclusive programs for LGBTQ+ individuals (and everyone else).

Reading this guide feels like finding that endearingly quirky expert who explains the complicated science in hero movies. Imagine having that character explain inclusion and diversity. I am more comfortable leading Inclusion and Diversity efforts with this book in hand.
I love Inclusive AF! This book is REAL, outshining other, sometimes dull books written in a monochrome business style. It's like sitting down with Dr. O'Ryan for a coffee. As an Inclusion & Diversity professional, I would have loved this book at the start of my journey, and highly recommend it to everyone on the path.
Jen O'Ryan has given a gift to the diversity and inclusion community and anyone challenged to create and maintain an inclusive, welcoming work environment. Inclusive AF is often conversational in tone, sometimes funny, but always founded in science and experience that is both relatable and practical. Literally a quick, direct, and easily understood field guide for those aspiring to translate good ideas and intentions into meaningful and sustainable results.
