On October 29, 2019, The Ames Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of Ames Human Relations Commission and Iowa State University Division of Diversity and Inclusion will host the second annual Symposium on Building Inclusive Organizations. This year's keynote speaker is Ritu Bhasin, an internationally recognized expert in diversity and leadership development. Read below for more information on Bhasin, or check out her website

Successful companies know that authenticity is everything. As a leadership and inclusion consultant, Ritu Bhasin gets this. She works to build cultural competence and accountability in the workplace--and shows how productivity, engagement, and satisfaction are natural byproducts of people bringing their authentic selves to work. As President of leadership and inclusion firm bhasin consulting inc., she coaches C-Suite leaders, executives, and diverse professionals on leveraging their differences for success. And as a global speaker, she challenges others to take ownership of their role in addressing racism and discrimination--and is a passionate champion of authentic leadership as a path to empowerment and success.

After years of this work, Bhasin discovered an undeniable relationship between inclusion and authenticity, which is the focus of her newly released book, The Authenticity Principle. It also includes insights from Bhasin's work as a yoga and mindfulness instructor--a practice she credits as being a key pillar of building personal and professional joy.

Bhasin has received numerous awards for her commitment to social change, including the IndoCanadian Chamber of Commerce Female Professional of the Year Award, the City of Toronto William P. Hubbard Award for Race Relations, and Western University's Young Alumni Award. 

Before founding bhasin consulting inc., Bhasin was a practicing lawyer.


A Symposium on Building Inclusive Organizations will take place on Tuesday, October 29 from 7:30 am - 1:00 pm at the Gateway Hotel & Conference Center. Registration for this half-day symposium is $100 per person ($80 non-profit rate) and includes breakfast, lunch, keynote speaker, and breakout sessions.
