About the book: The author is Minal Bopaiah. With just 176 pages, this book (published in 2021) is succinct and inspiring. A Philanthropy News Digest review described it this way: “Though this book is short, it’s dense; it’s meant to be studied, dog-eared, and shared throughout your organization. Just the glossary alone, with a three-page list of the most crucial concepts addressed in the book, will be enough to keep readers going back to this book regularly as a reference guide. Those looking for a way into the immense change that seeking equity requires would do well to look at this book as an elegantly written skeleton key.”
