Description - Working Together: Diversity as Opportunity by Angeles Arrien
"Working Together" looks at the issue of diversity as an adventure to be utilized, not a problem to be solved. With 18 chapters on the creative results and synergetic applications of diversity, it is a practical guide to both theory and application. The contributing authors, including some very well-known names, each bring his or her unique viewpoint based on his or her own nationality, race, cultural roots, gender and vocation. From the political arena, the former leader of the communist world and a man who had a major role in ending the Cold War, Mikhail Gorbachev makes a case for diversity being a key factor in creating a much-needed "new civilization". Anthropologist Raine Eisler proposes a partnership approach. Television genius, Norman Lear makes a case for how we can create unity for the good of all, without becoming uniformly the same. As the book's editor, Angeles Arrien, writes in the introduction, "Our challenge is to foster creativity that supports co-operative economics for the purpose of creating a global society that values diversity and universal common ground".
