About Randi Bryant: In 2001, Randi founded and still operates a corporate training company, educating companies, executives and employees on topics including anti-discrimination, communication in a diverse work environment, and how to capitalize on a diverse workforce. Randi has grown it from a small start-up consultancy to an award-winning company with a full-service staff and a roster of Fortune 100 clients. Over the years, she has become even more fascinated with how uninformed people in the United States are about racial, gender and cultural issues – and how scared they are to discuss them. Randi writes a popular blog, Beatnik24.com, that frequently addresses issues of race, diversity and communication. Her recently published book Neversays: Things That You Should Never Say is meant to improve communications in diverse work and social environments, is gaining attention. She is a sought-after speaker on diversity issues and is a graduate of Tuskegee University and The College of William & Mary.
