Every other year the Maryland mediation and conflict resolution community gathers at the Maryland Mediators Convention. This year it will be held December 7, 2018 in Annapolis, MD. If you are a mediator (even if not in Maryland!) or a conflict resolution graduate student, this is an excellent opportunity to meet professionals in the field, network, and engage in continuing education.
I will be offering a session on careers: “My Day Job is “Mediator” – Developing a Career Pathway in Conflict Resolution.”
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.
