Diversity and Inclusion at the London Olympics (new book)

New book by WAPPP fellow, Stephen Frost:

The Inclusion Imperative
is the untold story of the inclusion programmes behind the scenes at the world's greatest event, the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It presents a radically different method for organisations to implement successful 'Diversity and Inclusion' and help themselves, their people and the wider world.

As Head of Diversity & Inclusion at the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Ltd., Stephen Frost was responsible for incorporating diversity and inclusion across the 200,000 workforce, volunteers and contractors, as well as in the $2 billion procurement programme and all aspects of service delivery. At WAPPP, Stephen’s research will focus on diversity and inclusiveness during the planning of the London Games which are regarded as one of the best ever. Stephen graduated from Oxford and Harvard and has a background in advertising and consulting. He is a Fulbright Scholar, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Young Global Leader with the World Economic Forum. He established the workplace team at Stonewall and led membership of their flagship Diversity Champions program for employers to over 300 members ranging from JPMorgan to the Royal Navy and Manchester City Football Club. He also developed the Workplace Equality Index, the UK's first LGBT leadership program in conjunction with Henley Management college and a diversity recruitment guide distributed to every higher educational institution in the country.
