Within the first 30 minutes of the movie there is a scene where Morpheus is asking Neo if he wants to kw the truth? Does he want to kw about The Matrix? As Morpheus begins to close the dialogue with Neo, he offers him the final opportunity to learn about the Matrix by giving him the choice of taking one of two pills - the blue one or the red one. If he takes the blue one, Neo will go back to his rmal life as it was before he met Morpheus. If he takes the red pill, he will then find out the truth of the Matrix! As you may kw, Neo took the red pill and found out the truth of the Matrix and that he was the ONE! Now! You may be wondering what in the heck do the Matrix, Neo, Morpheus, red and blue pills have to do with Diversity, Inclusion, and Recruiting? Well, this book is the red pill. It is the truth about Diversity Recruiting, which I w call Inclusion Recruiting. I will get to why I call it Inclusion Recruiting shortly. Over the past 20 years, I have had the opportunity to be involved with numerous projects that involved recruiting diverse talent for various Fortune 500 Companies. I have seen companies have success and failure in those efforts. Those experiences have been as an internal Corporate HR/Recruiting professional, or as an external consultant and advisor. It is a combination of those experiences that have led me to create a comprehensive guide to diversity recruiting in Corporate America. And of course, I will be putting a unique spin on how to ensure your success.
