The solution in the face of change and challenge is to focus on people. 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 based upon the concerns, thoughts and questions from people just like you.

Select Testimonials

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

HER ENGAGING STORYTELLING TALENT AND EXPERTISE IN D&I WILL BRING GREAT VALUE TO ANY ADULT LEARNER 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.”

Amway

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.”

Reginald Johnson

Chief Diversity Officer & SVP NA Field Human Resources, Signet Jewelers

YOU WERE AMAZING AND LEFT ME WALKING BACK TO MY DESK FEELING SO GREAT, SPIRIT COMPLETELY LIFTED AND MADE ME VIEW THINGS SO DIFFERENTLY…”

Direct Energy Attendee

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.”

Tony Botti

Manager, Behavioral Health Service and Student Counseling and Mental Health Service, Harvard University

SHE RECEIVED A STANDING OVATION AND WAS THE PERFECT SPEAKER TO WRAP UP OUR CONFERENCE!”

Senior Project Manager, The Bridge Conference — The Direct Marketing Association of Washington

The world we live in is changing—and that's good.

LGBTQ+ representation on television is only going to help the next generation of kids grow up in a world that is more inclusive and accepting than ever before. 🥰🥰🥰

BUT Utah Sen. Mike Lee and four other Republican colleagues are calling for a new TV rating so parents can block their children from watching programs with “disturbing content,” including LGBTQ+ characters. 🙄

This means that if you're an 8-year-old kid who's just starting to realize that you're gay or trans and want to watch cartoons about your favorite fictional character who happens to be gay or trans as well… Well, too bad! You're not allowed to see that because some parents don't want their children exposed to it yet (or ever).

Don't abandon hope yet though, because there are still people fighting for love and acceptance.

State Senator Derek Kitchen does not exactly agree with this ban. He thinks that labeling a gay character on a television show “disturbing content” is divisive, cruel and unacceptable. And he's right! It's BS!

People of the LGBTQ+ community should feel free to be themselves. But the world we live in does not always allow that—especially when it comes to our children.

I've spoken to many men who are confused about how to mentor female colleagues. They tell me that they're afraid of saying the wrong thing, or offending someone.

I understand their concern, but I also think it's important for men to understand that there is no one-size-fits-all way to support women in the workplace. So instead of getting caught up in trying to do everything "right," I recommend joining a professional organization dedicated to advancing diverse women—and learning from others who are already doing this work.

Another way to make sure you don't end up in a questionable situation mentoring female colleagues is to mentor a group of women instead of just one woman. Your mentorship can make you a valuable ally, and fear should not stop you from joining the fight for women's progress and equality.

Groups offer opportunities for learning about the issues impacting women in the workplace today, and guidance on where your expertise can be best utilized.

Hey, guys: it's time to step up.

We've all been there. You're in a meeting and the boss—a woman—is talking about how to handle a problem, and you can't help but notice that everyone else around the table is nodding along with everything she says. She makes a suggestion, and someone else chimes in with a similar idea that's not quite as good or practical as hers, but they get all the credit for it.

Women face discrimination every day from men who don't realize what they're doing—men who think they're being helpful when they're actually being condescending; men who think their ideas are better than women's because they come from men; men who think that women don't need equal pay because their jobs are less valuable. It's all BS!

But let's be real some of it is unconscious. I can help you identify, own, and confront your unconscious biases and finally become a male ally in the workplace. Read more about how to do this on my blog:https://rishagrant.com/men-the-time-is-now-to-be-an-ally-in-the-workplace-here-is-how/

Y’all I can’t believe this is my life! ❤️

I spent so many years believing in a dream that my bank account and many people didn’t think mattered. But I knew that I had a purpose, and that purpose was to make sure everyone was free to be loved and accepted for who they are.

First I had to accept me, and by doing that and living authentically I built the life of my dreams and worked to free others to do the same. 💪🏾

I am thankful to all the companies who have joined me in making the world a place of love, acceptance, and belonging.🥰

Ignoring what is happening in the world has gotten us where we are now. Basic DE&I training is not the answer. I am the only one offering a transformative approach to DE&I that addresses the root cause that is holding back true inclusion and belonging within our organizations.
