diversity and leadership wisdom for a complex world
Jeanne Martinson is a diversity strategist and best-selling author. Her goal is to assist leaders in understanding diversity issues so they can attract, retain and engage their ideal workforce.
Jeanne is the founding President of Saskatchewan CAPS chapter.

"War and Peace in the Workplace" is Jeanne’s third book. It explains why we have conflict with others based on their diversity – whether it is small ‘d’ diversity such as values, marital and family perspectives, thought processes – or big “D” diversity issues such as race, age, gender and ability. This book was short-listed for the 2006 Saskatchewan Book Awards in the category of Education. Jeanne’s third book, based on her graduate research comparing corporate and criminal leaders is called “Gangster Boss” and will be released February 2012.
