Day of Philanthropy Festival: Using Humor and Levity to Repair Our Communities

Dr. Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas, professors of the popular course Humor: Serious Business at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and authors of Humor, Seriously, draw on findings by behavioral scientists, world-class comedians, and inspiring business leaders to reveal how humor bolsters resilience through hard times. DOP Festival Co-Chair Tina Sharkey will have a conversation on the power, theory, and application of humor: what makes something funny, how to use humor to make a strong first impression, deliver difficult feedback, persuade and motivate others, and foster cultures where levity and creativity can thrive in your family, work, and philanthropy.
