Risha Grant Text Reviews

Risha's approach to diversity and expert advice impressed me to say the least. She is articulate, smart and provided a practical approach to improve diversity and easily applicable resources to achieve success.

Zohar Ziv, COO (retired) - Deckers Outdoor Corp. (Ugg Boots)

Risha grant is tenacious in her approach to define and explain diversity from her audience's point of view. She is the most engaging and interesting speaker with a style of her own that will provoke audiences into learning without being aware.

Carolyn Cummings - Director-Employment and Diversity, Boy Scouts of America

Risha grant is a dynamic and very effective speaker. Her ability to demonstrate the value of diversity & inclusion, while providing individuals the opportunity to recognize and examine their own personal beliefs and behaviors, allows her message to truly resonate and live beyond her presentation.

She spoke to over 90 attendees for 10 different Samsung Companies across the USA and Canada. She was inspiring, funny and brutally honest. I really appreciated her ability to tell a story, willingness to share her personal experiences and insight. She was professional and personable.

Michelle Manglal-Lan, Sr. Manager - Samsung, North America

We had Risha Grant in for our International event in Belfast in February 2018, and she was phenomenal. Risha absolutely crushed it, she is amazing and had an incredible impact. Thank you so much!!!

Christina Luconi, Chief People Officer - Rapid 7

We just completed her session and it was the most well received of our 3 keynotes, in my opinion. She knocked it out the park. Or, to use a basketball reference, she was draining 3's all speech long.
She did a fabulous job. I truly appreciated her story-telling and transparency. It allowed our team members to connect with her.

Chief Diversity Officer & SVP NA Field Human Resources - Signet Jewelers

We loved having Risha as our Keynote Speaker for our 2020 Professionals of Color Conference. This year came with a lot of challenges, but Risha and her team made going virtual smooth. Risha's content challenged the cultural norms and we appreciated her openly speaking her truth and experiences.


Risha has such a dynamic personality that was felt even through the virtual environment (although I bet seeing her in person is even better!) and a disarming manner that made it easy for us to engage with her. If you're looking for an energetic, no BS speaker to engage your organization on some tough topics, hire Risha.

Director of Education and Programing - Nestle Purina Women Leaders Forum

D&I is hard work because we humans are complicated. The bottom line is, when you need an extraordinary facilitator--who is clear-eyed, compassionate, and unafraid to work on implicit bias--call Risha. She steered the conversation to illustrate the unacknowledged, unaware white privilege that was underneath many of the exchanges among the participants, yet always created an environment of safety. Risha is uniquely equipped to lead your people forward into better territory where everybody wins.

Manager, Behavioral Health Service and Student Counseling and Mental Health Service - Harvard University

Risha Grant did an amazing job at our virtual leader offsite. She provided an entertaining, compelling and informative discussion on the power of Diversity and Inclusion. Risha left us with many tools and provocations in our own journey to be better stewards of Diversity and Inclusion. I highly recommend Risha as a speaker. Thanks to Risha for providing the highlight of our session!

General Manager, ProConnect Group - Intuit, Inc.

Risha provided an excellent presentation that had record attendance - with some of the highest evaluations ever. Risha's presentation teed up a critical conversation for our membership, one that we plan on continuing. Thank you for helping make it a success.
