Digital, Diverse & Divided

How to Talk to Racists, Compete With Robots, and Overcome Polarization



In an age marked by increasing polarization, Digital, Diverse & Divided shows how we can build cultural intelligence and get along with people who are different from us.

Our divides are destroying us: red versus blue, Black versus White, globalists versus nationalists, agnostics versus Christians. Drawing on seminal research on social identity and cultural intelligence, this book explains our impulse to divide people into “us” versus “them” and reveals how we can tackle tribalism, confront racism, and develop a common vision for the future.

In Digital, Diverse & Divided, David Livermore outlines the four competencies of Cultural Intelligence (CQ):

• Motivation (CQ Drive)
• Cognition (CQ Knowledge)
• Metacognition (CQ Strategy)
• Behavior (CQ Action)

He shows how we can apply this foundation to a wide range of intercultural situations. This book includes personal anecdotes, stories from around the world, and references to the work of prominent authors, psychologists, thinkers, and economists.

Livermore examines different factors—place, race, gender, religious beliefs, and politics—that shape how we see the world and offers a way for us to reclaim our shared humanity.
