Subtle Acts of Exclusion


Subtle Acts of Exclusion (SAE) surround us every day. They happen to us; we overhear or observe them at work, at home, and at play; and we inadvertently commit them. 

In this book you will learn to:

  • understand different types of SAE based on gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, ability, age, generation, and religion

  • speak up about SAE

  • create a culture of civility, transparency, and inclusion at your organization
