What is INVERSITY™?

INVERSITY™ is a new word for many. It may even be an entirely new concept for those well versed in traditional diversity and inclusion efforts. Karith's training and workshops allow organizations to have conversations about DEI in a less threatening, more inviting, deeper and authentic manner. 
INVERSITY™ takes the "division" out of traditional DEI programming by offering a truly INclusive way to communicate, learn, and create an environment vital to an organization's success.  
INVERSITY™ accomplishes this mission by creating and supporting brave environments to hold courageous conversations based on intentional language, positive psychology and neuroscience.
Keynotes & Training
For over a decade, Karith has given keynotes and done training at industry associations like SHRM, corporations like Bristol Myers Squibb, and academic institutions like Stanford, Harvard and more.
Consulting
With mounting pressure to apply DEI principles organizationally, Karith can either work alongside someone on your staff or as a contracted consultant to fulfill the role of Chief DEI Officer in your organization.
Online Learning
Access online learning and real tools to navigate the sensitive and ever-evolving landscape of diversity. INVERSITY™ offers seven online learning modules with engaging supplemental activities designed for introspection and reflection.

What INVERSITY™ is NOT:

INVERSITY™ is not about ignoring or dismissing issues of bias, conscious or unconscious. 
This is not about promoting a philosophy that perpetuates the “blame or shame” game.  
  • INVERSITY™ certainly does not propagate the narrative of victims and villains (that is limited thinking; and one that disempowers those who need empowerment the most). 
INVERSITY™ is about maximizing positive outcomes for everyone participating in the conversation. 

Because MAYBE we've been doing DEI all wrong.

With traditional DEI training, we've been working from the outside in

When it comes to behavioral change, the least effective approaches involve fear, guilt or regret.4

The best way to change behavior is by working from the INside out.

Experts agree that long-lasting change is most likely when it's self-motivated and rooted in positive psychology.4 
Naturally, you’ve heard the old saying, “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.”

So let’s stop shaming people with concepts like White Fragility because it’s not getting us anywhere—and only creates more division. This is exactly why traditional DEI doesn’t work long-term.

The 7 Pillars oF INVERSITY™ 

Ignite a seismic shift that starts from within. 

This is not surface work, but transformational behavioral change that happens when the message reaches the core of one’s being, planting seeds of choice and desire to believe (and behave) differently.

Dr. Martin Luther King’s philosophy was built upon love and changing from the inside out.

"Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

If everyone lived by Dr. King’s teachings, how would the world change?

“When we take the time to change the way we look at things— the things we look at change.”

Dr. Wayne Dyer

TESTIMONIALS

What people are saying about INVERSITY™

"Her message of 'inversity,' putting the focus on inclusion rather than division, made a huge impact. The audience enjoyed her presentation style, and fully engaged with her. Karith’s talk received more enthusiastic positive comments than any other speaker. I was even receiving texts about how great she was while she was still on stage!"
Mark Saum, Principal, Fidelis Consulting Corporation
“Listening to Karith Foster allowed me to learn about #INVERSITY from a space where it is okay to laugh!

She spoke from her heart and explained that the world around us is difficult, but keeping a positive mind shapes us to a new perspective.”
