Diversity in ADR Task Force Meeting

Wednesday, May 26, 2021 at 12:00pm


Please join us for the next meeting of the Diversity in ADR Task Force. We will host William E. Froehlich, Langdon Fellow in Dispute Resolution at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, and Deputy Director of the Divided Community Project (DCP).

Professor Froehlich will be discussing how collaborative race equity initiatives are emerging in communities across the country and their various forms including truth and reconciliation, coalitions to dismantle racism, reparations, diversity commitments, and implicit bias and cultural competency training. In this context he will also discuss DCP’s April 2020 report A Practical Guide to Planning Initiative for working Together to Advance Racial Equity, which urges communities to take multi-pronged, sequenced, collaborative problem-solving approaches to addressing racial equity. The Divided Community Project is currently soliciting feedback for the 2nd edition of their report on how corporate and business stakeholders might constructively become involved with multi-layered approaches to addressing racial equity.

Learn more about the Divided Community Project from their paper, Sharing Dispute Resolution Practices with Leaders of a Divided Community or Campus: Strategies for Two Crucial Conversations, the winner of CPR’s 2021 Professional Article Award.
