The author does a good job of providing an outline of steps (Platinum Rule) for hopefully preventing and responding to alleged discrimination or harassment in the work place. The 10 steps provide suggestions for reviewing and addressing communication processes, current policies, training techniques, equality issues and how to handle alleged complaints early in the process.
