BRINGING FRESH A.I.R. INTO OUR CONVERSATIONS WITH LIBRARIANS DURING COVID-19
with Michelle Bradley and Mo McKenna
Michelle Bradley of the Midwest Collaborative for Library Services (MCLS) , and Mo McKenna of Return on Energy will discuss how they increased engagement with librarians using the AIR framework for weekly virtual conversations. Our conversations energized and supported hundreds of library workers at the height of the COVID-19 Crisis.  

The AIR framework was a powerful and effective way to engage in conversation around complex issues that brought fresh air and hope to the participants, and inspired them to take small actions at their own libraries. During our presentation we will reveal the AIR framework.

TRANSFORMING MEDICAL TRAINING USING APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY
with Archana Mishra MD, MS, FCCP, FACP & Kim Marie McKernan MBA, MS
Burnout among physicians, residents and medical students is a real, prevalent and consequential issue, that is important to the world of medicine. From emotional exhaustion to depersonalization to a sense of low personal accomplishment, it can lead to serious consequences including increased rates of medical errors, lower quality patient care and depression. At this critical time, we need to address this problem urgently as a community.  At the AI Jam, we will share how we are using Appreciate Inquiry (AI) to achieve tangible successes transforming medical training to benefit student and faculty.

CONNECTION BEFORE CONTENT: THE POWER OF AI FOR MULTI-CULTURAL PLANNING
with Barbara Lewis and Amanda Trosten-Bloom
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science (DMNS) has a respected long-standing reputation in and beyond the Denver metro area; but its many offerings have appealed to and engaged white visitors more often than people color.  Recognizing the “disconnect” between their customer base and the larger community, DMNS leaders determined to shift the Museum’s culture and invite those "on the outside" to be co-creators of the Institution’s future.  The year-long Appreciative Inquiry process they used was dubbed The Community Collaboration Project, Imagining Tomorrow’s Museum.  In this 10-minute TAD talk we’ll explore key decisions and activities that resulted in an inclusively-created multi-cultural vision that forged long-term partnerships with communities of color and more culturally sensitive ways of designing and working within the institution.
