On behalf of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council Co-Chairs Eva Dias (Phoenix Human Capital Solutions, LLC.) and André Williams (Law Office of André Williams, PA.), we invite you to join us for a book review of 

"Caste ( Oprah's book club); The Origins of Our Discontents"by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson

The book describes racism in the United States as an aspect of a caste system – a society-wide system of social stratification characterized by notions such as hierarchy, inclusion and exclusion, and purity. Wilkerson does so by comparing aspects of the experience of American people of color to the caste systems of India and Nazi Germany, and she explores the impact of caste on societies shaped by them, and their people.
