Why are you asking these questions?
Because of the small scale and personal nature of the Jam, this questionnaire is more in-depth than most. We want to get to know you! Some of these questions may feel very personal. This is because the people in the room are the focus of the Jam. Sharing our stories, experiences, ideas, etc., in different ways, is how we engage and learn together. Don't worry too much about grammar, spelling, and making full sentences. Our goal is to get a sense of who you feel you are, not to test you.
How much should I write?
The more the team learns about you, the more informed their decision about selection can be. At the same time, please share only as much as you feel comfortable sharing. There is no minimum or maximum length for responses. We will follow up with you if we need more information.
Who has access to my info?
Only the leadership team will have access to your application. All of your answers, including your name and basic info, will be kept in full confidentiality.
Note: We encourage you to cut-and-paste your answers to this application into a word doc, BEFORE you hit the submit button, as we are occasionally experiencing some technical difficulties with this contact form. Once you have received confirmation from us that we received your application, then you can go ahead and delete the word doc. Thank you!
