Radical Acceptance: Be Better Than Your BS
Empower Authenticity, Confront Bias and Create a Culture of Inclusion through Radical Acceptance
This speech was created to help audiences and individuals to understand Radical Acceptance and how their BiaSphere, Belief Systems, and BS stop them from welcoming and embracing all of humanity, including their own. Our BS shapes how we feel about ourselves, how we perceive the world, and how we interact with others. Radical acceptance teaches that through authenticity we can connect with others on a deeper level, and create a culture of acceptance and belonging. Mental health and psychological safety are more important now than ever before in the workplace, and companies that create an environment where everyone is allowed to be themselves without fear of rejection, are at the cutting edge of what it means to be an innovative and profitable place to work.
Risha’s honest, memorable and practical presentation on Radical Acceptance: Be Better Than Your BiaSphere, Belief Systems, and BS blends together stories from her life experiences as a bisexual black woman, former division one athlete, and small business owner to teach audiences how their diversity can become their superpower! Audiences learn how their own behaviors can be shaped by their own BiaSphere, which includes all of the subconscious beliefs, thoughts, feelings and emotions they have about themselves and the rest of the world around them. Radical Acceptance: Be Better Than Your BS will provide all audience members with the awareness and education to help them become better leaders, employees, colleagues, and people.
Attendees will leave this keynote understanding:
• The power of authenticity to shift company culture
• How to use diversity as a competitive advantage
• The psychological need for belonging
• How our BiaSphere has shaped our view of the world
Permission: Granted to Get Rid of Your B.S.

You know the problem. Permission: Granted is your answer.
Throughout this session, Risha allows attendees to authentically express their biases, while giving them easily applicable tools to get over them, however, screwed up they may be. Although diversity can often be an uncomfortable topic, Risha’s approach helps attendees to easily understand the concept, without feeling bored or judged.
Risha Grant teaches Diversity & Inclusion through the lens of humanity using terms like B.S. or Bias Synapse as a way to explain our brain’s involvement in the processing and validation of bias.
