That’s BS! How Bias Synapse Disrupts Inclusive Cultures and the Power to Attract Diverse Markets
Sexual harassment. Racism. Bias. They are the dire consequences of a dearth of diversity in the workforce. Diversity is not the issue, people are. Now this timely new book, That’s BS! explains how closing the race and gender gap makes businesses more competitive and prosperous.
With a barrage of news stories about sexual harassment, society finds itself in a moment of reckoning. Do we continue down the same path and pay a higher and higher price for exclusion – or open the doors to inclusion and a safe work environment? Consultant and author Risha Grant makes a strong case for diversity and inclusion – and even prompts readers to examine their own unconscious bias.
In That’s BS! How Bias Synapse Disrupts Inclusive Cultures and the Power to Attract Diverse Markets, Grant calls out the elephant in the room. Gender and racial inequality is breeding hate, separation and violence. She presents a three-step process to confront bias and find common ground. Readers will also learn the keys to creating a culture that welcomes all employees, boosts retention and productivity.

That’s BS is refreshing. It’s courageous. It’s honest. It’s just what we need to keep the conversation going and to open ourselves and our organizations up to the present realities we must work to overcome in order to realize a more inclusive tomorrow.”
I have admired Risha Grant since I met her years ago. She is authentic and real, just like this book. That’s BS! – How Bias Synapse Disrupts Inclusive Cultures and the Power to Attract Diverse Markets requires us all to look inside ourselves to discover our inner biases, and we all have them. I applaud Risha for telling her story and giving her honest assessment of bias in our society today. I also applaud her for being an advocate for diversity in a world that isn’t always open to her message.
I just finished reading your book and I loved it! I love your transparency and insight. I laughed and cried. Your term Pissy-Polite had me laughing so hard I choked.” Thanks for being so inspirational
