WEDNESDAY, MAY 20
9:00 - 10:15 am | CLOSING GENERAL SESSION
This keynote is uniquely designed to educate and cultivate a sincere comprehension of the intersection of modern-day diversity, but with the focus on INVERSITY(TM) - inclusion, and introspection. Karith Foster, professional comedian & speaker, uses the perfect blend of humor, interactive audience participation and heartfelt personal stories to engage her audience and shed light on taboo and sensitive subjects that include but are not limited to racism, sexism, LGBTQIA issues, classism even size-ism and the many other predispositions that fall into the realm of unconscious bias. This high-energy presentation prompts people to not just think about how we view the world and ourselves, but how to actively promote positive change together.
