KK Harris is from Los Angeles and her heritage is both Native American Indian and African American. She knows what the lack of inclusion feels like first hand. She remembers going to a bathroom in Mississippi and reading signs that said “colored” and how confusing that was as a four-year-old. On that same trip, her mother had brought her to meet her grandmother and put flowers on her brother's grave who as a teenager was shot in the back as he walked out of the shop by a white racist. Unfortunately, the injustice of prejudice continues to affect the lives of many and so standing for the rights of diverse acceptance is important to her. Today KK is a Certified Executive Coach, with major firms in the City of London, specialising in the delivery of Mitigating Unconscious Bias training to large organisations. She is also an author of a parenting book and has a career coaching practice aimed at helping women from diverse backgrounds. KK doesn’t hold back or make any apologies yet always aims to find solutions. When she delivers a session it should not be missed!
