Authors Bio

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.

 

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.
