027: Risha Grant—a voice for inclusion and diversity
Risha Grant is a voice for inclusion. She speaks out through her workshops and consulting, and through Diversity ConneX, her employment matching company.
In this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast Rish discusses her life experience of growing up filling several categories of diversity. A native of Sapulpa, OK, she became a scholarship basketball athlete and played at Kansas State University. She returned to Tulsa to start a diversity communication consulting firm. That led her to expanding into connecting diverse individuals with employers and boards looking for diverse representation.
Risha is an alumna of Leadership Oklahoma (class XXIV), named One of Four to Watch by the Tulsa World, among other recognitions. She serves on several boards, including the executive committee of the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice and the National Federation for Just Communities.
