BOMA SV: Diversity and Inclusion Workshop: Getting Rid of Unconscious Bias
October 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
Join BOMA Silicon Valley for a special diversity and inclusion workshop led by consultant and author Risha Grant to discuss Getting Rid of the BS (Unconscious Bias). This event is being offered for free to BOMA Silicon Valley members, courtesy of BOMA Oakland/East Bay and sponsored by Metcon TI.
In her no-holds-barred style, renowned diversity and inclusion thought leader Risha Grant will share her perspectives as a woman of color and her prescriptions as a diversity expert. She’ll share truths about unconscious bias, micro-aggressions, and other actions that perpetuate discrimination and inequality. And, she’ll offer some practical advice for finding respect, understanding and inclusion. Grant will ask hard but necessary questions like:
- How do we address the present social unrest, racial injustice and real steps we can take now to promote inclusion?
- Where do we go from here?
- What are the next steps that we need to take as individuals to help to repair the rifts and move toward a society that’s both diverse and inclusive?
About Risha Grant: Grant has been awarded numerous honors such as the 2019 Top 100 HR Influencers, 2018 Inclusive Leadership Award, Entrepreneur of the Year 2017, One of Four to Watch by the Tulsa World, one of the Most Influential African Americans, and one of the Top 10 Entrepreneurs by Engage Magazine. She has also won the Tulsa Regional Chamber’s Top Inclusive Award three years and been nominated for the Journal Record Woman of the Year award several times.
