About This Keynote Session

We may find ourselves in the middle of a COVID pandemic, but the oldest and deadliest pandemic in American history is racism. It impacts the mental health of our friends, colleagues, and students in ways that can only be described as soul-destroying. In Doyin’s keynote he will discuss how we all must change how we think, how we love, and how we fight in order to eradicate racism once and for all.

Doyin Richards is a dynamic keynote speaker who inspires people to be open about mental health, and to embrace anti-racism at work and in their communities. We are in the midst of two major crises in America: mental health and race-relations. They impact our homes, schools, businesses, relationships, and (obviously) sanity — but do we recognize the signs of these problems? Are we doing enough on the front-end to prevent personal and professional disasters from happening? As a keynote speaker, consultant, and workshop facilitator, Doyin provides tangible, actionable solutions that provides results for his clients all over America. Amgen, Cisco, Workhuman, Bark, Salesforce, and Wayfarer Studios are a few of the companies where he recently delivered a keynote address/workshop. Mainstream media values his message as he's often called on to make appearances for NPR and HLN, and has been interviewed by the TODAY ShowABC NewsEssence MagazineCosmopolitanUSA TodayCNNParents MagazineYahoo!, the New York TimesSunrise Australia, and more. His message isn't just for adults. Doyin authored two picture books for children published by Feiwel & Friends (an imprint of mega-publisher Macmillan). His latest picture book WATCH ME tells an inspirational personal story of what it’s like to immigrate to America from a 3rd world country while overcoming racism and other intense obstacles. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE? tackles the tough topic of introducing kids to positive race-relations without raising them to be "colorblind." Both books were #1 new releases in their categories on Amazon. Through his books, recent TEDx Talk, workshops, media appearances, and his new Anti-Racism Fight Club virtual seminar, Doyin regularly demonstrates that he is a leader in the fields of mental health, anti-racism, healthy masculinity, and fatherhood.
