Panel on Women in Mediation

The Trust Mediators project has prepared an interview with female practitioners in the field of mediation. Having reflected on how the panelists adapted and thrived within a male dominated environment of peacebuilding, this panel will focus on gender perspectives, especially in different cultures, related to the element of trust building in mediation by learning from the experiences of practitioners in the field. Students from the Trust MEdiation Project team will be interviewing mediators from tehri respective cultural region in order to learn if gender is a factor that impacts trust building in mediation (and if so, how). It will be an interview style event with a Q&A session at the end.
