Virtual Southern Tier YP Summit
October 15, 2020
The YP Summit is not your average conference, especially this year! The day was re-designed to be 100% virtual, so you can enjoy the event from the comfort of your office, at home, or on-the-go. With the challenges that have affected society in 2020, we crafted a line-up with timely topics that will help you adapt and come out stronger. The YP Summit is your place to feel supported and have your voice heard. We’re going to #RewritetheScript.
This year’s conference will allow you flexible options to tune into multiple session types including:
Pricing has been adjusted to reflect the new virtual format, where the components of an in-person YP Summit have transitioned to a virtual platform.
As a hybrid event with many online speakers, this year’s program has the highest quality content and speakers the YP Summit has seen to date. All attendees, whether Virtual or In-Person, will have access to the Keynote and Featured Speakers and 2 concurrent live streamed sessions.

Get Rid Of the BS
Whether implicit or conscious, bias is the number one threat to humanity and any company’s success. Throughout this session, Risha allows attendees to authentically express their biases, while giving them easily applicable tools to get over them, however screwed up they may be. Although diversity can often be an uncomfortable topic, Risha’s approach helps attendees to easily understand the concept, without feeling bored or judged.
Risha Grant teaches Diversity & Inclusion through the lens of humanity using terms like BS or Bias Synapse as a way to explain our brain’s involvement in the processing and validation of bias.
