  • Radical Acceptance: Be Better Than Your BS

After years of conversations and consultations, research and interviews regarding diversity & inclusion, Risha Grant has learnt that companies don’t have diversity problems; they have people problems.  For too long, diversity has been blamed for loss of productivity, discrimination and a litany of other workplace faux pas, but diversity has never been the issue.

After years of conversations and consultations, research and interviews regarding diversity & inclusion, Risha Grant has learnt that companies don’t have diversity problems; they have people problems. 

For too long, diversity has been blamed for loss of productivity, discrimination and a litany of other workplace faux pas, but diversity has never been the issue. It can’t be — people and their BS are the problem.

I solve people problems, NOT diversity problems!

What I have also gleaned from 25 years in business is that these so-called “diversity” issues come from a term I’ve coined called Bias Synapse, easily remembered as BS. You know the problem. Getting rid of the BS is the answer.

Motivated by her passion to correct societal “isms” like racism, sexism, classism and plain old stupidism, it is Risha Grant’s personal mission to expose the subtleties and values of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion while shining a light on the impacts they create.
