Through my consultative work at the United Nations, I attended discussions and wrote statements on reconciling different world views and creating multilateral programs for sustainable peace. Common themes involve the need for and benefits of diversity in leadership. I am continuing that work as Social Media Coordinator for the American Bar Association’s Women in Dispute Resolution (“WIDR”) Committee.
Studies show that corporations, governments, and other organizations experience greater economic growth, for example, when more women and minorities are included. However, longstanding systems are not always set up to integrate women and minorities, which results in a variety of conflicts leaders do not know how to resolve powerfully. Too often, they try (without success) to ignore the problems and hope they resolve themselves.
In my private practice, employers partner with me to investigate, mediate, and train on conflicts involving:
- Age discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Gender and gender identity discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Workers compensation discrimination
