Overview

WALL STREET JOURNAL, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY & USA TODAY BESTSELLER!

A book on DEI in the workplace that speaks not only to executives but to employees at all levels of a company, by award-winning diversity consultant Risha Grant.


DEI consultant and corporate speaker, Risha Grant, shares her practice of learning how to welcome and embrace people’s full humanity, without BS, full stop. What’s BS? It’s bullshit for sure, but more specifically it’s the powerful and often invisible belief systems we’ve been steeped in since birth—the judgment and bias we carry with us that impact our own lives and the many others we encounter every day. Risha teaches us about the inner work and the outer work we need to do to dismantle our “biasphere,” and change how we see ourselves and how we interact with others. The more people are willing to acknowledge and address the biases inherent in their belief systems, the more those biases will dissipate and the better our work environments will become.

Readers will learn how to:

  • Recognize when your BS manifests as “isms” and phobias that follow you to work
  • Cure scarcity mentality, a damaging byproduct of fear
  • Validate other people’s experiences
  • Become a real ally
  • Engage in micro efforts that can effect change on a macro level
  • Create an environment that fosters a sense of belonging for everybody; that is, “get in where you fit in”
  • Abolish groupthink and create space for diverse ideas
  • Design explicit feedback channels
  • Generate truly inclusive policies that people can trust
  • Spot and stop bullying (it doesn’t always look the way you think it does)
  • Understand that equality isn’t equity; the difference leads to everyone getting what they need
