Dr M’gadzah draws on the evidence base of psychology and social sciences alongside current affairs and lived experiences across cultures and the globe to tackle discrimination head on. Her approach tackles discrimination head on, highlighting the many issues of prejudice and bias, and the reasons for them, and offering hope and inspiration for tackling them. She acknowledges that racial equity is about humanity and how we see and interact with each other at a human level, with empathy and compassion, without interference from politics, entitlement or ‘caves of privilege’. The Framework supports individuals and organisations in the fight against racism, to promote a more equitable society, addressing awareness of ‘self’ and others, and challenging beliefs, values, behaviours and emotions.

READ THE REVIEWS
“Dr M'gadzah tackles head on the issues of modern-day racism. The book is set within the
difficult, turbulent and often unsettling world of today. It inspires interest by referring to current affair issues such as the tragic death of George Floyd, the Black Lives Matter Movement and ‘the Harry and Meghan' interview with Oprah Winfrey. By using popular cultural references, such as the books The Colour Purple (Alice Walker), Dr M'gadzah engages the reader wholeheartedly. The Six Stages Framework promotes optimism and empathy at a time of great need.”

“This is an excellent read and covers the key areas of diversity, equity and inclusion in a thorough and systematic manner. I would like to congratulate the author on her thoroughness. The contents of the book encourage learning organisations to be reflective through self-assessment. When taken seriously, action plans will be converted to actions, and positive differences will be seen and celebrated, from the individual level right up to the institutional level – no-one should be left out.”

“I think this book is very clear. The examples you use from the media are really interesting and
engaging, and most importantly very relevant in today's climate! I like how you included both
the positive and negative axes and how racism or growth can progress in either direction. I
really valued reading about non-white racism towards black people – this book sheds light on
this issue that clearly also needs to be thought about much more. It was really insightful to read the author’s thoughts on the development of shared empathy to open up conversations about race and difference. I also liked the ideas about solidarity and common humanity in bringing people together towards a common understanding. I think seeing each other's humanity is vitally important, because we are dealing with a history of the inhumane treatment of one group of people for the benefit of another. I appreciated reading about how we care for people of colour's mental health because of the toll it takes on us to have these conversations or even to witness the issues of racism ongoing in different ways. Great work!”
