Success in leadership is about having – and embracing – different perspectives. Check out the first category of the 2022 CMI Management Book of the Year longlist: diversity and inclusion
A lightbulb with the words 'think big' inside it

In CMI’s 75th anniversary year we’re running a range of initiatives to explore how management and leadership can become more inclusive. As part of that, this year’s CMI Management Book of the Year competition is themed around “Different perspectives”. We wanted to identify the books that offer original and valuable insights about the barriers to fair, inclusive workplaces – and how management and leadership can address them. 

You can find out more on our CMI Management Book of the Year hub, but we thought you’d also enjoy an introduction to the fascinating ideas raised in this year’s longlisted books.

The longlist is split across four categories:

  1. Diversity & Inclusion (below)
  2. Race & Gender
  3. Skills & Mindset
  4. The Bigger Picture (coming soon)

Today, let’s take a closer look at the first category: Diversity & Inclusion

Keep an eye out for the shortlist, to be announced on 25 July!
