McConnell Foundation
Meeting of Foundation Partners

In May 2010 the Treehouse Group assembled a panel to inspire the audience at the McConnell Foundation’s Meeting of Foundation Partners. By way of a few quick talks, our aim was to help them to think differently about their work.

Treehouse Advisory member Adam Axbey analyzed some data he’d collected at 2009’s Grown Up Science Fair to show how sad images make people play more slowly and in a minor key when improvising on a piano. Joelle Abra talked about planning and work, Misha Feldmann described his life as a defense lawyer, and Amie Sergas revealed Roller Derby as a form of social innovation that empowers women and is a way of mentoring teenage girls.
