Hi there!

I am Raisa Ghazi: an internationally requested public speaker on Inclusive and Ethical Leadership and an expert in Women's Leadership. I have been acknowledged by Forbes as a leader in her field of coaching executives and the Dutch Social & Economic Board ‘’Top Women’’. I'm also a guest lecturer at Nyenrode Business University, one of the most prestigious universities in the Netherlands.

 

In 2018 founded SkillGenie (the first Dutch E-learning platform that promotes equality in the workplace) and the High Tech Tea (an organization that pledges to make technology a more women-friendly industry). These events draw thousands of women and are full of inspiring speakers, knowledge, and fun!

I strive to spread awareness about Ethics, Diversity, Inclusion, and Inequality in Technology through my position as a government advisor and an educator. I am committed to helping companies and countries implement frameworks for a safer technology industry. I'm a speaker on Ethics in Technology, Inclusive Leadership in Technology, Growth Mindset, Bias in AI,  and Equality in Technology.

MY EXPERIENCES RANGE FROM

Public Speaker • Keynote Speaker • Motivational Speaker • MC • Moderator • Presenter • Day Chairwomen • Orator

 
I SPECIALIZE IN

BUSINESS

I encourage tech organizations that want to commit to fairer and more ethical practices. Plenty of businesses nowadays go the extra mile to reduce inequalities globally. These best practices serve as inspiring role models to the rest of the world.

INCLUSION

I commit my life's work to create more diversity & inclusion in technology, increased cultural diversity, and female leadership. These subjects are all critical to achieving the UN’s SDGs. In addition, as a motivational speaker, I aim to spark interest in others in a world with more justice.

MINDSET

I empower hundreds of professionals in the workplace by promoting the Growth Mindset. The Fixed Mindset keeps us stuck in traditional and competitive structures, unsustainable growth, inequality, and unethical business practices. Large technology firms like Google and Microsoft have already embraced the Growth Mindset and utilized it to stimulate more diversity and innovation. 

TECH

Bias in automated processes causes discrimination to grow exponentially. We need more conscious and ethical technology to make the industry safer: from biased recruitment software to lack of ethics in self-driving cars and medical robots that aren't inclusive towards patients. The world has seen it all, and it's time for a change. I have been a keynote speaker on this topic for the Dutch government.

My goal is to spread awareness about the need for a more inclusive perspective on business, technology, and mindset.

EVERYONE CAN CODE — 2019
I won a government grant for an educational program for refugees & asylum seekers in coding

In 2019 I won a grant to help the Dutch government solve the challenges they experienced with unaccompanied and minor asylum seekers & refugees. I proposed to teach them the universal language of coding to develop a better prospect. Helping these youngsters learn how to program robots and develop critical digital skills was the most valuable experience of my life.

HIGH TECH TEA — 2018
My nonprofit platform for promoting women in technology

In 2018  I noticed that the Dutch technology industry significantly lacked diversity and inclusion. That’s why I founded a platform (High Tech Tea) that promoted a feminine tech industry. Within three years, the High Tech Tea: attracted thousands of women who visited events that encouraged more Female Tech Entrepreneurship, stronger Female Leadership skills, and increased Financial Literacy through tech and was promoted by the Dutch Royal Family.

RESEARCH OFFICIAL DEVELOPMENT AID — 2015
Internationally featured research on the relation between ODA & the quality of institutions

For my second master's, I researched the relation between Official Development Aid & the Quality of Institutions as measured by the World Bank (WGI). I had found that governments who diminish the quality of institutions risk losing a significant portion of their Official Development Aid. This research was featured internationally, and it was the start of my career as a public speaker.

Raisa Ghazi | Internationally Requested Speaker | Inclusive Leadership

Raisa is very involved in the community. She does not only talk about community work but also involves local entrepreneurs and makes High Tech Tea much more than just an interview series. There was little Tea about it…. But mostly sharp questions and good conversation. Raisa is very committed and driven, which makes a conversation immediately go into depth.
