Diversity in Africa: The Coming of Age of a Continent provokes reflection on diversity through a collection of essays and papers whose authors themselves are diverse in experience and nationalities - representing all continents except Antarctica. The voices of the authors share their realities of diversity by offering unique perspectives into diversity on an individual level, as well as the experiential challenges of implementing diversity programmes at the country, public sector, company and civil society levels. Many authors' realities of diversity were selected to expand the definition of diversity, beyond the compliance parameters of gender, ethnicity and physical ability.
