Whether implicit or conscious, 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 workforce and community is a roadblock. You know the problem. Getting Rid of the BS is your answer.

Throughout this session, Diversity & Inclusion speaker Risha Grant allows attendees to express their biases, while giving them easily applicable tools to get over them, however screwed up they may be.

Empower Authenticity, Confront Bias and Create a Culture of Inclusion through Radical Acceptance.

This speech will help audiences and individuals to understand Radical Acceptance and how their BiaSphere, Belief Systems, and BS stop them from welcoming and embracing all of humanity, including their own. Our BS shapes how we feel about ourselves, how we perceive the world, and how we interact with others. Radical acceptance teaches that through authenticity we can connect with others on a deeper level, and create a culture of acceptance and belonging. Mental health and psychological safety are more important now than ever before in the workplace, and companies who create an environment where everyone is allowed to be themselves without fear of rejection, are at the cutting edge of what it means to be an innovative and profitable place to work.
Risha’s honest, memorable and practical presentation on Radical Acceptance: Be Better Than Your BiaSphere, Belief Systems, and BS blends together stories from her life experiences as a bisexual black woman, former division one athlete, and small business owner to teach audiences how their diversity can become their superpower! Learn how your own behaviors can be shaped by your own BiaSphere, which includes all of the subconscious beliefs, thoughts, feelings and emotions you have about yourself and the rest of the world around you. Radical Acceptance: Be Better Than Your BS will provide your audience members with the awareness and education to help them become better leaders, employees, colleagues, and people.

Attendees will leave this keynote understanding:
● The power of authenticity to shift company culture
● How to use diversity as a competitive advantage
● The psychological need for belonging
● How our BiaSphere has shaped our view of the world
