Your Assistance and Contacts are Needed! Community Group & Faith-based Dispute Resolution

Friday, October 05, 2018 3:07 PM | Anonymous

The ADR Institute of Alberta, the Winkler Institute for Dispute Resolution, and the Aga Khan's Conciliation & Arbitration Board (CAB)are collaborating to host a Community Roundtable on Challenges & Opportunities in Dispute Resolution and Prevention, 8-11 am Thursday morning, October 25th in Calgary.  

This event will provide a forum for faith groups, community organizations and other stakeholders to discuss and understand the successes and challenges faced by these groups when resolving conflicts. Participants will have an opportunity to share and learn from others as we discuss the tools and resources used by the other organizations. Through these discussions and the compilation of the information you will share, we will work together to advance dispute resolution mechanisms for the betterment of the broader community. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to participate in a valuable community capacity building initiative. 

The contributing partners are actively inviting the many community and faith-based groups that experience and work to resolve conflict within their constituencies. 

ADRIA members that have clients, contacts, or are actively involved with any such group are encouraged to pass along the attached invitation.  A similar session in Toronto attracted representation from the social services sector and numerous faith-based communities.  The sharing and outcomes that resulted were hugely beneficial to all participants, and ADRIA would like to ensure that there is expanded and inclusive representation in Calgary.  

Register online before Thursday, October 11, 2018.
