Penick-Parks, PhD

I firmly believe the role of literature in society is more than windows and mirrors for young readers, but also a means to look inside our souls, at ourselves and society, and create social change.

“The Diversity Consultant Cookbook is a welcome addition to the field. The authors have managed to gather a wide range of perspectives that give any practitioner a head start in identifying critical distinctions of diversity and finding ways to address them. The work is substantive and has wide breadth at the same time. This book will make a difference…I recommend it highly!” 

Howard Ross Author, Our Search for Belonging, Everyday Bias, and ReInventing Diversity
