Praise for The Human Equity Advantage
"" Human equity challenges the boundaries of current thinking on diversity and inclusion because it represents a natural evolution from focusing on organizational barriers to empowering the individual and the organization collectively. By creating a platform where each person and organization can determine whether a person's unique skills and attributes are appropriately aligned and fit with the organization's objectives, it provides a real breakthrough strategy that will also address diversity fatigue.""
Stephen Shea, Managing Partner, People, Ernst &Young, Canada

"" Wilson's human equity model advances diversity, crystallizes it as a manifestation of strengths of character that foster well-being, and imbues life with meaning and purpose. Intellectually stimulating, Wilson has crafted a holistic endeavor that explores, expresses, and enhances the very best attributes that make our work and life worthy of living.""

"" As Trevor explains, being inclusive starts with leaders going back to basics and remembering that people are individuals first and part of a group second. Our actions should value and respond to the needs of each individual to help them develop and contribute to their full potential and be all they can be.""
