We are proud to report that our favorite theme, Be All In, is clearly reflected in our accomplishments:
- BE focused on our mission to provide affordable mediation services and training.
- Make ALL of our efforts inclusive and collaborative.
- Celebrate the many ways volunteers participate IN our work.
As we look ahead to the new year, here are some of the issues we want to address:
- How do we influence more people to choose mediation at earlier stages of conflict?
- How do we educate more mediators to understand the impact of culture on resolving conflict?
- How do we deliver conflict management skills to more organizations and agencies?
Your support matters in helping CDSC provide affordable and accessible mediation and training services to the community. We invite you to join our efforts by making a generous year-end gift.
Be All In!

The Mimi Grosser Scholarship Fund
For more than two decades, Mimi Grosser has been an invaluable player in the CDSC lineup and a real role model for at least two generations of CDSC volunteer mediators, interns and Board members.
In Mimi’s honor and in recognition of the extraordinary service of CDSC’s volunteers, we created a permanent fund in Mimi’s name in 2013 that honors exceptional CDSC volunteers and provides scholarship support for deserving participants in CDSC training and professional development programs.
The first winners of the Mimi Grosser Scholarship Fund Award were Judy Abrams and Harry Manasewich. Melissa Brodrick and Steve Lilly-Weber are the founding co-chairs of the Mimi Fund.
