Editorial Book Review:

By Liam Bottler

In a society where the need to fit in and perform frequently overshadows our true selves, Ritu Bhasin's "We've Got This: Unlocking the Beauty of Belonging" shines as a hope for healing and empowerment. Through a combination of firsthand accounts, empirically supported observations, and pragmatic counsel, Bhasin provides an indispensable manual for individuals grappling with the intricacies of selfhood, inclusion, and agency.

Fundamentally, "We've Got This" is an example of the transformational potential that comes from accepting oneself as one is. Bhasin openly discusses the difficulties she faces overcoming bullying by racists and issues related to her ethnic identity, drawing on her personal experiences as the daughter of working-class immigrants. She provides readers with a road map for recovering their authentic selves and finding connection in a world that frequently feels unfriendly and unwelcoming by sharing her journey from adversity to empowerment.

This book is special because of Bhasin's ability to combine comedy, empathy, and research-based insights. She skillfully combines personal stories with doable tactics to create a journey of self-discovery and belonging that feels approachable and accessible. Bhasin's advice is inspiring and insightful, whether she's dispelling misunderstandings about diversity and inclusion or providing helpful hints for developing authenticity.

Furthermore, "We've Got This" is a welcome reminder of the strength and beauty found in variety. Bhasin encourages readers to face their prejudices and broaden their notions of belonging as she highlights the diversity of the human experience and the strength of valuing our individuality. By doing this, she presents an inclusive and joyful vision that goes beyond social conventions and expectations.

Bhasin contributes a plethora of knowledge and understanding to her job as a DEI and empowerment specialist who has won awards. Every page exudes her enthusiasm for social justice and equity, encouraging readers to take action and push for change. "We've Got This" provides a road map for both individual development and societal change, regardless of your level of activism experience or where you are in the process of learning about identity and belonging.

To sum up, "We've Got This: Unlocking the Beauty of Belonging" is an inspiring and relevant credo for everyone looking to rediscover who they really are and feel like they belong in a hostile world. This book will connect with readers from all walks of life with its unique blend of humor, empathy, and research-backed ideas, encouraging them to stand in their power and embrace who they really are.

About the Author

Ritu Bhasin

Ritu Bhasin, LL.B. MBA, is an award-winning speaker, author, and expert in belonging, equity, leadership, and empowerment, and is the CEO of Bhasin consulting inc., a renowned DEI consulting firm that has worked with hundreds of organizations internationally.

A passionate advocate for living and leading authentically, Ritu has presented to hundreds of thousands globally and coached over a thousand professionals to cultivate and claim belonging. She’s living proof of what can happen when you stand in your power while fighting the hate and hardships in your way.

But Ritu didn’t always feel empowered to be an unapologetic, fiercely authentic person. Born in Toronto, Canada, to Sikh Punjabi immigrant parents, Ritu experienced the constant sting of racist bullying growing up, while also struggling with cultural tension about her identities. She carried her childhood trauma into adulthood, where she felt constant pressure to mask her authentic self across most of her relationships and in her work life, first as a lawyer and then as an HR leader at a global law firm.

While trying to convince herself that she was living the “dream,” Ritu had a startling realization: because of relentless experiences with hate and life hardships, she was minimizing her authenticity to “fit in” among circles where she felt she didn’t belong. And in doing so, she was profoundly unhappy.

Looking to transform her life through the power of healing, Ritu left her corporate job, launched her global DEI consulting firm, became a yoga and mindfulness practitioner and teacher, studied trauma and wellness healing practices, wrote the bestselling book The Authenticity Principle, and dedicated her life to empowering others. Most importantly, she committed to living as authentically as possible to claim belonging for herself and others.

Ritu’s mission in life is to help create a more empowered, inclusive, and inspired world by unlocking belonging for all. She wants everyone to experience the magic that comes with living their truth.

Ritu still lives in Toronto but travels the world to eat, swim, dance, hike, and work.
