10 Open Mic: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Kurt Gering, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority Kurt Gering facilitated an open mic session asking for attendees to identify good, bad, and ugly experiences with economic and social sustainability. Contributions from individual attendees follow: â¢ Tampa International Airport is forming a Be Well Program and undertook a Desk to Runway 5K run for employees. â¢ San Francisco International Airport installed a hydration station to support the use of reusable water bottles. A yoga room was created. â¢ Social program training is often not mandatory, but sexual harassment prevention training is required. One airport is making social program training mandatory, similar to sexual harassment prevention training. â¢ A challenging experience is talking about partnerships with carriers and then developing a continued discussion on social issues with the carriers. â¢ An airport shared a negative experience with ineffective messaging. When language did not resonate with, or was not understandable by, a community, the airport experienced challenges. â¢ Remaining static means failure. Solely because something is the current culture, does not make it right. â¢ Change does not need to be large or monumental, but it starts the process.
