COVID-19, ethnic unrest, financial pressures, and the me-too movement have created historic changes in the way we address conflict.  Fundamental shifts in how we socialize and how we work as dispute resolvers have to evolve as well.

 
Learning skills that help you host meetings, which are responsive and respectful to all participants including the mediator, are the new normal.  In-person or online, these skills are important to acquire and perfect so you can care for all participants and practice self-care too.
 
Disabilities come in all manners, shapes, and forms; some visible some invisible.  Diversity and inclusion need to incorporate client, attorney, and practitioner’s needs fully during this transition to the more prevalent use of ADR post COVID-19.

Learn How to Create Fully Accessible Virtual Meetings and Dispute Resolution Sessions

 

Join us October 15th & 16th 2020 1PM ET – 3 PM ET (two hours)

Join Debra Vey Voda-Hamilton, Esq. and Gary C. Norman, Esq. L.L.M for a four-hour training 1:00-3pm (two hours) on October 15th and 1:00-3pm (two hours) on October 16th that will address how you create fully accessible virtual meetings and dispute resolution sessions.

Participants will learn how to use, and help their clients use, technology in a way that enhances everyone’s ability to feel competent and fully able to participate in dispute resolution sessions.

Participants will become aware of their own and the participants’ sensitivities, enhancing their ability to use diversity and inclusion in a much more organic manner to address a dispute and facilitate its redress. ​

Participants will gain skills of inquiry, which are appropriate and specifically assist the needs of all parties.  This program is consistent and expands best practices by providing language to inquire and preserve everyone’s ability to participate confidentially. These skills help the mediation process ensure everyone has an active and equal role in setting up participation perimeters in the process.

​There will be group conversations to express feelings, process and provide the ability to engage these new skills in actual mock mediations. All will be taking on the role of participant, mediator, and attorney with needs that are seen and unseen.  We will discuss technology that helps facilitate equal participation for all.   These meetings can be translated into training for non-profit boards of directors, mediators, and town hall discussions.
