TAD Talk: Appreciative Inquiry’s Wholeness Principle: Bridging My Internal Divides to Create Inclusive Spaces
The JAM is a multi-generational gathering of students, practitioners, and the curious celebrating Appreciative Inquiry, strengths-based and positive approaches to change and life. The AI Community jams in a celebration that fosters renewal and connection in an intimate atmosphere of welcome. The schedule includes a diverse range of creative appreciative approaches that engage our intellects, emotions, and curiosity.
A few highlights of the agenda:

- Applying AI to work in communities with Fran Stoddard, Vermont Story Lab, host of Vermont’s Across the Fence: America’s longest running TV show!

- And back by popular demand, poems by our own Ada Jo Mann!
