“This is the book that's missing from the conversation about equity and inclusivity in the workplace. The need for it is so great that I thought about writing it myself! Thank goodness Janet Stovall and Kim Clark have done the work, based on years of experience and expertise. This book will help a lot of people and a lot of companies."
AUTHOR: THE OPPOSITE OF HATE: A FIELD GUIDE TO REPAIRING OUR HUMANITY
"Communications can bring people together or tear them apart, build societies up or burn them down. With so much at stake, we have to move beyond the performative to do the transformative. This book shows us how."
PRESIDENT, SOCIAL IMPACT AND THE UPS FOUNDATION
“Communicating clearly under ordinary circumstances is challenging enough in today's world of short attention spans and hyper-divided perspectives. When the subject matter is prickly, the task is even more daunting. Business leaders need more than positive intent, we need DEPTH. This book provides relevant and practical communications guidance with a business value proposition. It is a must-read for leaders who understand the power of their platform and want to use it for good.”
FOUNDER OF INTEGRATED WEALTH SYSTEMS
"It's not easy writing a book about something that can change the world when there is a system in place today that keeps you from doing that. Seeing these two women step up and speak up to help companies stop saying stupid sh*t is phenomenal. It's needed and urgent, and as a five-time New York Times bestselling author plus now out with my sixth bestseller, I know how important it is to share what you know to improve the world. If you're someone like me who will walk off the planet serving, this is the conversation you need.
Read this book if you are a leader of a big, middle, or small-sized company, and pay attention to stay in integrity to your core vision and principles and communicate them in depth. Your business revenue and results will thank you for it."
AUTHOR: THE SACRED YES AND YOUR DEEPEST INTENT
“The Conscious Communicator by Janet M. Stovall and Kim Clark is a must read for anyone wanting to enlarge their capacity to engage in our increasingly diverse and complex environment. It invites you into the inquiry of inclusion, and to bring with you not only your skills but your compassion and vulnerability as well. “We find ourselves confronted with the fierce urgency of now,” so eloquently prophesied by Rev Dr MLK Jr. There is not a minute to waste in becoming more civil, collaborative, and celebratory.”
AUTHOR, INCLUSION, HOW TO BE AN INCLUSIVE LEADER, AND BEYOND DIVERSITY
“More and more, organizations are being asked to take a stand on issues important to the incoming generation of talent, and they are woefully unprepared – or worse, resistant to using their voice. Stovall and Clark have offered a model that can be utilized to make sure leaders build the organizational muscle of inclusive communications, so that they never miss the opportunity to deepen their relationships with key stakeholders in the moments that matter.”
