"Leaders often say that the greatest obstacle to diversifying their organizations is their commitment to `excellence' and `meritocracy.' Scott Page's important book blows that myth out of the water, powerfully demonstrating that diverse teams are better: more creative, productive, and profitable. After this, there is no excuse for making excuses."-Naomi Oreskes, coauthor of Merchants of Doubt
