Founder & CEO of Risha Grant LLC; Helps Companies Reduce Biases and Improve Diversity and Inclusion

Risha Grant is the founder and CEO of Risha Grant LLC, and she helps companies reduce and confront unconscious biases, as well as improve diversity and inclusion in the office.

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, ageism, and classism 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 receiving an equal education. Grant would later learn how experiences like these would feed into her biases and with that realization, Grant planned to change the world, starting with the reddest state in the nation.

Today, Grant 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, Grant created DiversityConneX.com, a highly successful online recruitment tool utilized by both small organizations and Fortune 500 companies to connect diverse professionals to their career opportunities, internships, and non-profit and corporate board positions.

As a national speaker, Grant uses passion, knowledge and humor to empower attendees to increase their bottom line by giving them tools to get rid of their B.S. The engaging approach of her consulting and training has helped governors, NBA teams, mayors, Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, and companies to reduce bias and further the understanding of diversity and inclusion.
