What is a Human Library?

A human library functions similarly to a regular library, however, the Books are real, human beings, who teach others about themselves and their experiences through interpersonal dialogue.  Experiencing a discussion with a human Book creates an opportunity for constructive interpersonal dialogue and learning between people who may normally not interact.  People who volunteer to participate as Books in Human Libraries represent various cultures and identities, may have experienced or witnessed social exclusion or indifference at some time in their lives, or are those who have participated in unique life experiences.  The Human Library offers a comfortable environment for diverse people to meet, ask questions, and learn from each other.

How does it work?

Participants who wish to have a two way, interpersonal discussion with a Human Book can schedule a 30-45 minute session with a specific Book or register at the library on the day of the event. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.    “Librarians” (representatives from the coordinating committee) will be on site to assure scheduling goes smoothly, and Books are returned in good condition. Light refreshments will be available.

Trust: The Core Catalyst for Collaboration

1 hour 13 min ago
Wednesday, March 2, 2016 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Leadership Academy Pillar: COLLABORATIVE

As a word, trust evokes powerful emotions in people, often stemming from a mixture of experience, societal standards, and individual risk sensitivities.  As a concept, trust has many colors and variations that are not well calibrated across individuals.  Despite this, trust is critical to positive human relationships and crucial to successful organizational endeavors.  In this workshop, we will point out the myths and truths associated with trust—a complex duality that provides a rich area for exploration!  Participation will dramatically increase one's awareness of how trust works in the real world, particularly in organizational (business) settings, and how the level of trust can impact probability of positive progress.

Risk Perception & Communication

Tue, 02/02/2016 - 2:37pm
Tuesday, February 2, 2016 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

When working with technologies that could pose a high (perceived) risk to the public, it is important to understand how people view risk and make decisions. In this presentation, Dr. Kent Welter will give examples of how common tasks or technologies that seem like a low health risk are actually high, relatively speaking, and vice versa. In addition to exploring the human psychology behind risk perception, Welter will also provide lessons learned from the nuclear industry on how to effectively engage the public when speaking about technologies that have a high perceived risk.

Bio        

Dr. Kent Welter received his Ph.D. and Masters of Science degrees in Nuclear Engineering from Oregon State University, and his Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology from the Oregon Institute of Technology. He has worked as a nuclear safety professional for the U.S. government and private industry for more than a decade. Dr. Welter current leads the safety engineering group at NuScale Power, which is working to commercialize small modular nuclear reactor technology.  He was awarded the Scientific Achievement Award from OIT in 2007, the Council of Outstanding Early Career Engineers from OSU in 2010, and also serves currently as President for the Willamette Innovators Network Board.
