“Recognize Your BS!”

Are You Full of BS?

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.

“Bias is the number one threat to humanity and any company’s success. If your company’s goal is to create cohesiveness within your organization, increase revenue, be innovative and elevate your reputation, the bias in your workplace is a roadblock.” – Risha Grant, author, speaker, business owner.

Testimonials

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.”

Alison Anthony

Director of Strategic Outreach & President, Williams Foundation, Williams Cos.

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.

Risha, I’ve read and reread your book in its entirety. I promise you that no human could have said your messages as well or as effectively as you did. I appreciated it all — your story, your viewpoints, your phraseology, your meaningful use of a few curse words that simply convey a feeling in a better way. Your writing is excellent, your provoking and instructional remarks are terrific and your ideas on how to do “stuff” is so correct and simple that it is profound and deep
