Simply Good: Big Changes Ahead, Plus the Big Announcement I Promised!

Phew! A lot has happened since our last Simply Good, which came out the day before the insurrection in the US Capitol. Since then we’ve seen our new administration take action after action to make progress for our country. A lot happened in January (does anyone else feel like it lasted for six months?). Now we’re in February and this is a letter about good news… and I have BIG, GOOD news to share today:
 
My book UNBIAS: Addressing Unconscious Bias At Work is coming out on March 30th!!!
 
This book is the next crucial step in my mission to make a difference for all by removing bias in hiring, leadership, and, well, everywhere. It provides tools for actively removing barriers and ensuring equity throughout your organization, and draws on decades of experience and research. UNBIAS is an ‘action manual’ to equip you to make a change in both your organization and your life.
 
I’m so EXCITED about the release of UNBIAS that I’m giving away three free months of LinkedIn Learning to the first 25 people who pre-order the book by February 15th. Just forward your receipt to [email protected] and you’ll not only get the resources provided in my book, but you’ll also gain access to thousands of skill-building courses available through LinkedIn for free!

As we are recognizing Black History month, we chose a handful of stories that focus on some big changes that are already happening or on the horizon. From the Oval Office to a century-old sport, moves are being made to propel the diversity and inclusion movement forward. Let’s do our part to keep that momentum going!

 

Simply Good: Year In Review

What. A. Year.

Of course, I don’t have to tell you that. We’ve all walked through a global pandemic, social unrest, economic crisis, and a highly-charged and divisive presidential election. When 2020 makes it into our history books, it will no doubt be a lengthy chapter.

However, we get to choose what posture we’ll take moving forward. We can dwell in the muck and the mire of an unprecedented year, or we can reflect on the goodness, tenacity, and revolutionary changes that have resulted from, or in spite of, these unfathomable circumstances. 

We at Rework Work are choosing the latter, which is why we’ve collected Simply Good’s top 10 articles of 2020. These stories are great reminders that trials can produce perseverance based on how we handle them, and with perseverance we can do powerful things.

 

Simply Good: Black History Edition

This February commemorates the United States’ 44th celebration of Black History Month. When President Gerald Ford first established its observance in 1976, he encouraged Americans to, “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” With that same spirit, we want to seize this opportunity to honor the accomplishments of just a few of the most prominent black history-changers today.
