About The Event

"Equipped for Change"

Everyone talks about the "new normal" or "getting back to normal" after an event.  But what if there IS no going back? What if you're not headed into a "new" normal; but really just your "next normal"?  Change is a process that begins with an event.  So often we focus so much on the event that we miss the process of transformation and growth that leads us to our "next".  During this session, we'll discuss the process of change; what that looks like in action; and ways you can equip yourself to embrace, manage, and lead through change to come out better on the other side.

Keisha A Rivers survived a harrowing Hurricane Katrina experience to become a successful international speaker, change agent and learning leader. As President of The KARS Group LTD, she facilitates successful outcomes by equipping people to embrace, manage and lead through change. Leveraging close to 25 years of experience in the strategic consulting and organizational development space, she creates opportunities for change, growth and sustainable success with clients across a variety of industries.

Keisha hosts a podcast entitled "Equipped 4 Change", has authored several books, the latest entitled "Equipped for Change: Doing the Deep Work of Transformation", and gives back through her 501c3 nonprofit organization The KARS Institute.  Keisha holds a BA from University of Pennsylvania, a M.Ed. from University of New Orleans and a Certificate in Women's Entrepreneurship from Cornell University. She is a Certified Diversity Professional (CDP), Certified Diversity Executive (CDE), Certified Talent Optimization Consultant and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Keisha has been named "50 Most Influential Women of 2021" by the Mecklenburg Times for her leadership in the Charlotte area; "10 Most Influential Black Women in Business to Follow in 2021" by CIO Views Magazine; "Multicultural Entrepreneurs You Should Know" by PRIDE Magazine and a 2021 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist for her book "Equipped for Change: Doing the Deep Work of Transformation".
