    Risha Grant is diversity personified. From her race, gender and lifestyle choices, to being a young, small business owner and tackling economic issues, every area of her life intersects diversity.

    Her interest in societal isms like racism, sexism, classism and plain old “stupidism” began when she was very young, instead of playing outside, she was inside “playing” school—or more accurately—learning to count, read and write, just in case her darker skin tone cheated her out of an equal education. Through this experience and others, Risha would later learn how experiences like these would feed into her BS and with that realization, Risha planned to change the world, starting with her backwards state.

    Today, Risha is the founder & CEO of Risha Grant LLC, an award-winning diversity consulting and communications firm. Their mission is to utilize diversity communication strategies, tactics and training as a catalyst to create an inclusive culture in every company and community. Additionally, Risha created DiversityConneX.com, a highly successful online recruitment tool to connect diverse professionals with careers, internships, and non-profit and corporate board positions.

    Using passion, persistence and knowledge, she has worked with governors, NBA teams, mayors, CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies and other business and community leaders to reduce bias and further the understanding of Diversity & Inclusion. As an international speaker, Risha teaches and empowers attendees with D&I tools to increase their bottom line and permission to get rid of their BS.
