Why Corporate Diversity Programs Fail — and How Small Tweaks Can Have Big Impact

Praise for White Working Class

"I recommend a book by Professor Williams, it is really worth a read, it's called White Working Class."

President Joe Biden

"Joan C. Williams has an uncanny knack for striking at the core of complicated issues, first gender and now class. No one should have an excuse for ‘class cluelessness’ after reading this book―and everyone should read it."

Anne-Marie Slaughter

President and CEO, New America

"Joan C. Williams has written an urgently needed Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus for the professional elite and the white working class, only better. Each chapter illuminates a core source of misunderstanding, and together they chart a way to bring the country together without abandoning the values of the minorities in the coalition. Read this highly important book and let’s get to it."

Arlie Russell Hochschild

Author, Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right

"In this blunt, compelling, tightly argued manifesto, Joan C. Williams sets out to truly understand the white working class, whose raw anger was so evident during the recent presidential race." 

Tony Schwartz

The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working; CEO, The Energy Project

In 2018, in the middle of the Trump era, Biden — who favors biographies and volumes on comparative religion — became obsessed with...“White Working Class: Overcoming Class Cluelessness in America,” by Joan C. Williams. He carried [it] everywhere, scrawling notes on the pages and pulling out well-worn copies to share passages.
