Program Details:
Led by Elizabeth Stokoe, TED Talk-er and Founding Editor of Mediation Theory and Practice, this dynamic one day training deals with impartiality and how we respond to racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination in a mediation context.

In a city home to every demographic imaginable, issues of diversity, discrimination and prejudice come up in everything from community mediations to noise disputes to small claims cases. What should a mediator do in these situations? And ‘what counts’ as racism, sexism or homophobia? This training addresses this complicated issue and evaluates different strategies to respond as mediators.

We will investigate what impartiality looks like in practice and the challenges of remaining neutral. What does neutrality actually look like? How do mediators explain and display neutrality to clients? In this training, mediators will learn how to embody this core value.

This training is perfect for those who want to gain confidence in tackling prejudice in mediation, for those who want to learn how to better explain and practice neutrality, and for those who want to meet and share best practices with others in the field.
