Mona spotlight

Join us for our Author Spotlight Series featuring Harvard Extension School instructor and noted author, Dr. Mona Sue Weissmark. Dr. Weissmark will discuss her book “The Science of Diversity” and answer your questions live.

About the book:
The Science of Diversity uses a multidisciplinary approach to excavate the theories, principles, and paradigms that illuminate our understanding of the issues surrounding human diversity, social equality, and justice. The book brings these to the surface holistically, examining diversity at the individual, interpersonal, and international levels. Shedding light on why diversity programs fail, the book provides tools to understand how biases develop and influence our relationships and interactions with others.
