She received the award in the category of social activism/charity for her book “The Inclusive Leader: Taking Intentional Action for Justice and Equity,” published by the American Bar Association.
The Living Now Book Awards was launched in Aug. 2008 by IndependentPublisher.com and Jenkins Group. The awards are designed to recognize the best lifestyle books and their creators.

Tyner’s book is available at the Planting People Growing Justice™ bookstore. The book includes a foreword written by Miguel Ramos, Senior Director of Diversity & Inclusion Strategy for the Minnesota Twins baseball team.
The author covers the four essential stages of being an inclusive leader – intrapersonal, interpersonal, organizational, and societal changes. She provides readers with her benchmark Leadership Framework for Action™ that exemplifies the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
The book outlines a framework for diversity, equity, and inclusion for anyone seeking guidance. Tyner provides readers with an in-depth look at the qualities exhibited by an inclusive leader. She provides practical methods, actionable items, and tools that can be utilized in a variety of environments to further the goal of DEI.
