intercultural communication and to be honest it is not really graduate level work. It's a good read for individuals who are unsure of what is appropriate for the work place.
This small book tells it like it is -- I am not a business person, but on a private one-to-one level, I use this book to try to educate friends and others as to the divisive, damaging effects of gender and racial stereotypes and exclusive language (such as the exclusive use of male pronouns and male terms to describe all of humanity, which includes women BUT YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW IT FROM THE EXCLUSIVE PATRIARCHAL LANGUAGE THAT MOST PEOPLE USE WITHOUT EVEN QUESTIONING IT OR BEING AWARE OF IT! This must end if we are to have a truly egalitarian world where women are perceived as being of equal importance with just as much "visibility" as males. Our culture still tends to treat women as second-class citizens and to otherwise render women invisible.) This small book is non-blaming, simple and straightforward and includes techniques on how to effectively confront sexism, racism, and stereotypes of ALL kinds. A must-read for all those in business and otherwise who want to help create a more just and inclusive world.
