Featured Peacebuilding Group: Mediators Beyond Borders International

For this week’s Featured Peacebuilding Group, I’d like to feature Mediators Beyond Borders International (MBII). MBBI builds local capacities for peace and promotes mediation worldwide. The groups works to enhance local capacity upon invitation, advocating for mediation in all arenas and providing consultancy services that promote peaceful conflict resolution. Many of its members started in domestic conflict resolution, and were interested in applying their skills to international settings.

I am a career coach, consultant, and head of a not for profit - the Forage Center - that offers humanitarian education training. I also teach at George Mason University and Drexel University. A one time lawyer, I spent many years teaching in a community college where I was a Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching in Estonia. I'm the author of Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016). I've been married to my best friend for over 31 years and we have two well adjusted adult children who teach me something new everyday. I live in Rockville, Maryland.
