Conflict Resolution on Global Issues
Interested in gaining insight about responses to conflict from around the world?
Conflict as opportunity is one of the main purposes behind a newly developed network entitled "Global Citizens for Conflict Resolution." This group's mission is to facilitate discussion between people with diverse backgrounds about the challenges and opportunities of conflict resolution. Our current mailing list includes professors, mediators, lawyers, nonprofit organizations, international fellows, and students...we hope our membership and learning grow exponentially in 2007.
Accordingly, we invite you to join us for our 2007 Kick-Off where we will enjoy a potluck meal, provocative dialogue, and guest speaker Barbara Raye, MBA! Ms. Raye is Founder and Executive Director of Center for Policy, Planning & Performance (www.effective.org), and Executive Administrator for the Victim-Offender Mediation Association. Her consulting firm has offices in St. Paul, Romania and Kenya. In addition, she is a practitioner of mediation, providing training nationally and internationally, as well as an author on collaboration, ethical use of power, effective change agents, and cultural, racial and gender bias in the North American mediation model.
