Emily Lawson
Director of Education, American Staffing Association

“Risha did a fabulous job reminding us that everyone needs “to be the change” in understanding diversity and inclusion in order to affect a long-term, organizational cultural change. She reminded us the starting point is for people to “unpack your boxes” and look at how they deal with bias.  She provided us with a great introduction to a very important issue that requires our attention. I highly recommend her to any business or district looking to have someone who genuinely connects with her audience and knows how to read a community.”

Michael Giardina
Assistant Superintendent For HR, Minisink Valley Central School District

“Risha knocked it out of the park at our industry conference. She brought a ton of energy to the presentation and she got everyone in the room to come face to face with their own bias, which was amazing to watch. There wasn’t a person in the room staring at their phones. That told me she got their attention and they were really thinking about what she was saying. I highly recommend Risha and her message for any business or industry dealing with bias and needing more diversity.”

Pat Hus
Senior Vice President — Bike Specialty

“We recently had Risha Grant at our 2019 NICA Conference in Sun Valley; we brought Risha as part of our DEI initiative. That sounds like “checking a box.” Far from it. Risha exceeded our expectations and was remarkable, relevant and thought-provoking in her ability to move our initiative from concept to personal transformation with humor along the way. Risha’s warm and real approach touched our audience by connecting her experience, tools, insight, and inspiration into the hearts of our audience for an ultimate change, impact, and influence. Bravo to Risha.”

Lauren Duensing
VP, Programs — National Interscholastic Cycling Association

“We recently had Risha speak at our annual Women’s Leadership Forum and she was phenomenal! She kept attendees engaged, challenging others to confront their own biases while also sharing her own raw and personal experience and biases. She was authentic in every aspect of the word and a true pleasure to work with!”
