Born in West London to Nigerian parents, Buki started his corporate career in media and advertising before moving into consultancy in the City of London. He founded RosAcad, an international business and sales training consultancy and DiverseCity Think Tank, a consultancy of workplace bias navigation and diversity and inclusion experts. In his work as a communications expert, consultant, and coach to tens of thousands of global clients’ staff over more than two decades, he became acutely aware of the impact of the multidirectional role of workplace bias in stifling otherwise prosperous careers, including his own at times.
Buki also became aware of popular, well-meaning yet unworkable so-called expert and academic theories to combat racial, disability, gender, sexual orientation bias, etc. such as IAT- Implicit Association Tests, traditional microaggression training, "White Fragility," "Anti-racist Consulting" and so on, which actually hinder the people they purport to help as well as reducing group productivity. Buki himself has grappled with unconscious (and indeed conscious) bias with varying degrees of success in his employed career and as a consultant in the City.
Frustrated with his own challenges and the inadequacy of behavioural experts, authors, and consultants’ attempts to address workplace bias, he set out to develop a fair, equitable results-oriented methodology to tackle person-to-person bias effectively in the workplace. His forthcoming book “I Don’t Understand” –Navigating Unconscious Bias in the Workplace is the culmination of more than two decades of working with, observing, and interacting with over 50,000 individuals throughout the world as a consultant, communications expert, trainer, and coach.
“Buki Mosaku is the world's foremost expert on navigating unconscious workplace bias.”
