The solution in the face of change and challenge is to focus on people by creating an employee-first organizational culture. Humankind is interconnected and we need to draw on that connection now, more than ever. We can’t allow systemic racism, a global pandemic or politics to drive us further apart, but instead, see it as an opportunity to draw us closer together.

Radical Acceptance:
Be Better Than Your BS

New Online Learning

2020 was a pivotal year for all of us. Like so many others, I transitioned to virtual speaking and consulting and while I wasn’t excited about the change, it offered a badass opportunity to connect with my audiences in an interactive way.

As such, we were able to gather data from 55,000 employees across the United States. That knowledge has been applied to this online course and provided to you.

Yes. You read that correctly! I built a course that sparks personal development and organizational change based upon current trends of DE&I concerns from people just like you.

Risha captivated the audience and challenged us as HR professionals to look at what diversity and inclusion really means.”

Karlina Christensen and Shauneen Scott

Committee Chairs, Northwest Human Resource Management Association (NHRMA)

Nestle Purina’s Women Leaders Forum invited Risha Grant to lead a (virtual) presentation to our members in August 2020. Risha’s presentation, Authenticity is Everything, was a candid discussion on how to identify and get rid of our biases so that we can show up as our authentic selves. The feedback from this discussion was overwhelming! Our members appreciated the safe space for discussion, asked thought-provoking questions that Risha answered truthfully, and walked away with tools on how to examine and overcome their own biases. Risha has such a dynamic personality that was felt even through the virtual environment (although I bet seeing her in person is even better!) and a disarming manner that made it easy for us to engage with her. If you’re looking for an energetic, no BS speaker to engage your organization on some tough topics, hire Risha.”

Leah Cleary

Director of Education and Programming, Nestle Purina Women Leaders Forum


Emily Lawson

Director of Education, American Staffing Association

We loved having Risha as our Keynote Speaker for our 2020 Professionals of Color Conference. This year came with a lot of challenges, but Risha and her team made going virtual smooth. Risha’s content challenged the cultural norms and we appreciated her openly speaking her truth and experiences.”


We just completed her session and it was the most well received of our 3 keynotes, in my opinion. She knocked it out the park. Or, to use a basketball reference, she was draining 3’s all speech long.

She did a fabulous job. I truly appreciated her story-telling andtransparency. It allowed our team members to connect with her.”

D&I is hard work because we humans are complicated. The bottom line is, when you need an extraordinary facilitator — who is clear-eyed, compassionate, and unafraid to work on implicit bias — call Risha. She steered theconversation to illustrate the unacknowledged, unaware white privilege that was underneath many of the exchanges among the participants, yet always created an environment of safety. Risha is uniquely equipped to lead your people forward into better territory where everybody wins.”

I keep hearing that companies are experiencing "DEI Fatigue." If I'm being honest, it really irritates me. After 2 years of companies taking DEI seriously, they are already fatigued when their employees have been tolerating toxic work environments and inequities for decades.

Stop the BS!

The article below is a great example of why DEI is still needed now more than ever. Arthur Grand Technologies, this is not a good look nor will it make your company culture feel connected or safe. You can have a policy against discrimination but actions speak much louder than words.

2700 people!!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Special thanks to Sherwin Williams for allowing me to do what I love for their national sales team. I met so many amazing people who want to Be Better Than Their BS! This event was even more special because I got to take my niece Kambry Scott with me who has been working for me for almost 2 years now.

Next, I spoke at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Conference Center in Nashville. I used to come to this hotel in my 20's to attend the Black Enterprise Entrepreneur's Conference. I got to hear amazing speakers talk about business and building their dreams. I would sit in the audience and imagine myself on those stages. Now, I'm on those stages!!!

When we can get over our BS, we can accomplish anything!

What do you get when you cross a racist, homophobic rant with being a pharmaceutical representative?

You guessed it: You get fired.

One GSK employee learned this lesson the hard way after he was caught flying into a racist, homophobic rant on an American Airlines flight. The employee told passengers that he worked for GlaxoSmithKline and boasted about his company's success and how much money he made for the company. He also made derogatory remarks about Mexicans, Muslims, and gay people.

According to Reuters, "The person's behavior was reprehensible and does not reflect our company culture," said GSK in a statement. "As soon as we were made aware of the incident, we immediately investigated and took action."

This is a prime example of facing the consequences of your actions—and why it's so important to confront your BS! Your biases can cost you your life and career —and if you don't learn how to recognize them and call BS on yourself when necessary, they could get you fired! Tell me your thoughts in the comments!

Imagine being sentenced to death for the things that are most important to you.

That's what's happening right now in Iran. Two Iranian women have been sentenced to death for their activism, including their LGBTQ activism. They've been accused of promoting homosexuality, gambling, fraud, and promoting illicit sexual relations and publishing them on the Internet.

Observers have urged the US to impose new sanctions on Iran over its human rights abuses.

To live somewhere where you could die for standing up for basic human rights is terrifying. But it's also a reminder that we must stand together in solidarity with those who are oppressed, no matter what country we live in. Oppression anywhere is a loss for humanity everywhere.

Let this be an opportunity for you to think about who needs you to take a stand for them in your community.

We stand with the LGBTQ community and their allies across the world as they fight for equality.

Let's continue to fight for human rights and equality everywhere
