At a time where there are more mediators than advertised “ADR Coordinator” or “Mediator” positions, how do you find the hidden gem? How do you market your ADR skills and background to be the last candidate standing? This session will feature several panelists from different career paths (i.e. government, non-profit, entrepreneur, human resources) sharing their struggles and success stories that led them to their current positions. Come learn about tools and strategies to identify existing positions or to create an opportunity within your existing organization. Share your experiences, ask your questions, and receive advice from our expert panelists and your fellow session attendees.
With the beginning of the academic year, a number of you will be exposing your students to conflict resolution styles, approaches, and methods. This free accessible video library by the Suffolk University and offered by the American Bar Association might be useful. Most of the videos are short, less than 30 minutes in length.
