In Leading for Justice: Supervision, HR, and Culture, Rita Sever provides a guide to effective leadership that centers on the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion and how the concept of justice can be effectively applied in running a business or an organization. The book is written for managers. The author starts by defining the role of an effective manager in an organization while identifying a manager’s different responsibilities. Readers will discover how to connect the vision of an organization with the goals of its members and the practices that set the staff up for success. From best leadership qualities to managing a team, from the journey of reflection of a manager to the role of HR Business Partner as an advocate for social justice, the author offers a path to leadership that wins.

This is a book that leaders need to read and one that will open the eyes of readers who work as staff in any organization to what they need to know. I enjoyed the way the author writes about business and organizational structure, the role of HR who must represent justice, and skills that drive success in individual contributors and teams across an organization. Any leader who cares about social justice will find wisdom in Rita Sever’s Leading for Justice: Supervision, HR, and Culture. The reader immediately understands that effective leadership creates spaces for everyone to grow and to belong. The book provides ample material for reflection and discussion. The author brings her experience as an HR partner and business consultant, enriching the book with real-life examples and relevant insights on leadership.
