New York Peace Institute is honored to be hosting Elizabeth Stokoe as a guest trainer on the important subject of Race, Sex and Impartiality in Mediation
. Please join us on Saturday, September 12th
at 9:00 am.
Led by Elizabeth Stokoe, TED Talk-er and Founding Editor of Mediation Theory and Practice,
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.
