We are pleased to share the CDSC 2012 Annual Report with a years' worth of pictures and asking for your continued commitment to CDSC.

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.


2013 Mimi Grosser Scholarship Fund Award:  Harry Manasewich & Judy Abrams

2014 Mimi Grosser Scholarship Fund Award: Roberta Kosberg & Jo-Ann Leinwand

2015 Mimi Grosser Scholarship Fund Award: Steve Morr-Wineman & Janice Durham

2016 Mimi Grosser Scholarship Awards: Ruven Liebhaber and Ellen Sullivan

In Memoriam: Helen Ladd

Our mediation community has just lost an extraordinary person with the passing of Helen Ladd, a shining star to so many of us. Helen was an outstanding mediator, combining her compassionate understanding with her social worker sensitivity. Helen was affiliated with the Community Dispute Settlement Center for the past 20 years. She enthusiastically and generously supported CDSC as a mediator, board member and most recently a member of the advisory board. In 2004, she received one of our first Community Peacemaker Awards.

To read more about her amazing life's journey and the ceremonies
arranged to celebrate her, click here.
If you are interested in attending the gathering in Cambridge on Saturday, November 24th, please contact CDSC for RSVP information.
