Goals and Objectives

What is your why when recruiting or hiring minorities? Are your actions the result of the “diversity” sign hovering over you, or are you that happy go lucky person that has no linguistic, color, gender, race, you name it barrier? Think about how can biases affect the way that you look at people that don’t look like you, talk to people who don’t talk like you, and view people who are not like you. Today is a great day to create new habits to break old behaviors!


About the Presenter: Dr. Lisa Raymond believes that communication should be the driving force that enhances not only organizational relationships but personal ones as well. As an educator, Lisa works to empower individuals to be more authentic by increasing how communication happens between the self as well as the relationships that occur with others. By starting with the core approach of teaching self-care, confidence, accountability, and empathy, individuals can utilize these transferable skills when conversing with others in both business and personal relationships.

Lisa has a Doctorate in Information Systems and Communications from Robert Morris University; she received her Master of Science in Leadership Business and Global Ethics, and Bachelor of Science in Professional Leadership from Duquesne University.  She has trained under Anthony Robbins as a certified life-coach for strategic intervention.

Dr. Raymond currently lives in Pittsburgh, PA, and is the mother of two, Deion (27) and Kiera (22). She is the CEO of First Choice Temporary Services, a 43-year young, second-generation family establishment that provides staffing services in the Pittsburgh area. Lisa is also the owner of Ethics2Talk, LLC providing motivational speaking, communication skills, and training in the areas of diversity and biases and workforce development. She is also an adjunct professor at Robert Morris University, teaching Public Speaking, Workforce Communications, and Intercultural Communications.
