Learning and Laughter: 

Humor Boosts Retention

Karith’s secret weapon is that she uses humor in her INVERSITY™ trainings. 

According to numerous neuroscience research, humor stimulates the brain’s dopamine reward system, which activates motivation and long-term memory. 2,3
“Diversity is such a hard topic to talk about… She made everyone feel comfortable by using humor and many stories from her personal life. These stories helped to understand the concept of diversity, and made it easy for people to relate to what she was talking about.”

INVERSITY™ Stands For:

  • INtrospection - The examination or observation of one's own mental and emotional processes. In short, understanding YOUR value, YOUR worth, YOUR connection to humanity.
  • VErify information before you accept it as truth and share it. Verify where someone stands— or who they are—before making an assumption or condemnation about them.
  • Reason vs Reaction - It’s normal to want to react to a perceived threat or uncertainty. Reason allows us to take a step back and analyze the situation, maintain healthy relationships and create new possibilities. 
  • Stop Fear, Start Faith - Fear amplifies what we fear. Faith promotes peace and calm.
  • Initiate a New Perspective - When we take time to shift our perspectives, it changes everything. 
  • Take Time for Gratitude - Our brains are wired to notice what’s wrong and what’s missing. When we focus on gratitude, it shifts our perspective and experience.
  • You are Magical - When we consider the symphony of human creation, you really are magical. 

The Voices of Society Are Loud

Be careful who you listen to. Many of today’s well-intentioned movements have been hijacked to create division and hate. 

As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” 

Navigating the 7 C’s of 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. The 7 C's allows us to have conversations about DEI in a less threatening, more inviting, deeper and authentic manner. INVERSITY™ is for people truly dedicated to elevating the conversation around DEI because they care about themselves and others whose lives they touch. 

The 7 C’s:
  • Compassion
  • Connection
  • Communication
  • Courage
  • Consciousness/Clarity
  • Community 
  • Conditioning

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
