Can Comedy Save DEI‪?‬ Take Back Our Schools

    • Education

On this episode, Andrew and Beth speak with comedian and diversity trainer, Karith Foster.

Foster shares her views on what is wrong about the way diversity training is done in schools and corporations and talks about her own methodology for DEI trainings, which she calls “inversity.” She explains how comedy can be used in a productive way to bring people together, rather than divide them, as happens in typical DEI trainings. We also discuss the state of comedy in today’s climate of hypersensitivity and cancel culture.

Besides her standup work, Foster is the CEO of Inversity Solutions & Funder of F.R.A.M.E., the Foster Russell Family Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which is committed to inspiring free speech, social change and empowerment through education and mentorship.
