Conflict & Culture: Mediating Locally is Mediating Globally

A Three-Part Seminar Series

Conflict and Culture Seminar SeriesCDSC is pleased to offer the mediation community a unique opportunity to explore Conflict and Culture. Mediators and disputants come from rich and varied cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Often disputants and mediators are not consciously aware that these backgrounds provide strong messages about a culturally perceived "right way" to fight and make up.

This first ever three-part series includes a workshop, a panel and a potluck seminar.
