Following her keynote at LEADDD San Diego, Risha Grant is back to share her thoughts on diversity, equity and inclusion and how to practically incorporate that work into our everyday lives.
Risha Grant knows there are many uncomfortable conversations around diversity today. Through her humor and storytelling, she is able to help people understand their own diversity journeys and the work that must be done. She challenges us to use our lenses to understand how we see the world and acknowledge what makes each of us diverse. Risha explains how inclusion truly means being invited, involved and engaged. She examines bias and what it means to identify our own “BS” … the bias synapse and how we can all face our own BS in order to build authentic relationships while allowing for grace.
