Abstract
"Allies and Advocates is about inclusion in everyday business life. Inclusion and diversity are topics that touch everything we do. For us to move away from the age of racial discrimination and injustice, we need everyone involved and everyone to know how they should show up to support BIPOC at work and beyond. This book provides straightforward information and action items to make any workplace more inclusive. A lot of books are not simple enough and they don't use accessible examples. Allies and Advocates simplifies complex topics, gives real-world examples, and provides tactics to help everyone see their own role in creating an inclusive work environment."-

Occupational Therapy
Abstract
Critical thinkers within the international occupational therapy profession are challenging the culturally-specific and value-laden assumptions that underpin dominant models of occupation and modes of practice, and are advocating the adoption of critical perspectives. This book addresses these concerns, employing an evidence-informed approach that helps readers recognize specific social structures and ideological assumptions that inform occupational therapy?s research, theories and practices; how these same factors create and reinforce conditions that impact people?s abilities to participate in occupations; and how they perpetuate inequitable occupational opportunities, thereby undermining the wellbeing of marginalized people and populations. Drawing from a wealth of cross-cultural research evidence the author demonstrates that occupation is a determinant of human health and wellbeing, and is thus a human right.

Abstract
"A bold and profound work by Haudenosaunee writer Alicia Elliott, A Mind Spread Out on the Ground is a personal and critical meditation on trauma, legacy, oppression and racism in North America. In an urgent and visceral work that asks essential questions about Native people in North America while drawing on intimate details of her own life and experience with intergenerational trauma, Alicia Elliott offers indispensable insight and understanding to the ongoing legacy of colonialism. What are the links between depression, colonialism and loss of language -- both figurative and literal? How does white privilege operate in different contexts? How do we navigate the painful contours of mental illness in loved ones without turning them into their sickness? How does colonialism operate on the level of literary criticism? A Mind Spread Out on the Ground is Alicia Elliott's attempt to answer these questions and more. In the process, she engages with such wide-ranging topics as race, parenthood, sexuality, love, mental illness, poverty, sexual assault, gentrification, writing and representation. Elliott makes connections both large and small between the past and present, the personal and political -- from overcoming a years-long history with head lice to the way Native writers are treated within the Canadian literary industry; her unplanned teenage pregnancy to the history of dark matter and how it relates to racism in the court system; her childhood diet of Kraft dinner to how systematic oppression is linked to depression in Native communities. With deep consideration and searing prose, Elliott extends far beyond her own experiences to provide a candid look at our past, an illuminating portrait of our present and a powerful tool for a better future."

Abstract
"The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it -- and then dismantle it." Ibram X. Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America -- but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. ... Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it. ... an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science, bringing it all together with an engaging personal narrative of his own awakening to antiracism. How to Be an Antiracist is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society.
