Positive Pivot: A Global Virtual AI Jam

October 15-17, 2020
Hosted by: David L Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry – Champlain College

Now more than ever, the world is calling for resilience, the ability to see strengths, innovative thinking, and solutions that come from an inclusive group of stakeholders.  Do you want to:

  • Engage in small group dialogue on topics relevant to our personal and professional practices
  • Hear from industry thought catalysts on what our world is calling for from AI
  • Learn from the real world experiences of our fellow practitioners
  • Convene community conversations around critical themes for this moment in time (social justice, resilience in times of Covid, using AI to spark innovation and reinvention)

Join us for the 4th annual Appreciative Inquiry Community (AI) Jam! 

This event has been an annual in-person gathering where AI practitioners, and anyone interested in strength-based approaches, can come to renew their energies, revitalize their practice, and reflect with each other on what the world is calling for from this community. This year, we’re rising to the challenge, making a positive pivot, and going virtual!  

Wherever you are on your AI learning journey, this event is for you.
