Community Boards presents: Compassion & Collaboration in Conflictual Times
Friday, June 2 2017
City Club, SF
Morning Workshop: 8:30-11am
Luncheon, Awards Ceremony & Keynote: 11:30am-1pm
Keynote Speaker: DANA CURTIS
As the distance between ourselves and others widens in the face of conflict - whether in the realm of politics or relationships - our ability to communicate and connect is vulnerable to collapse. Likewise, our hope things can change. Dana Curtis will offer her thoughts about how we can narrow the divide and bridge the gap between ourselves and the "other."
Dana Curtis, a Bay Area mediator since 1991, values opportunities to mediate disputes in which the quality of resolution matters at least as much as "making a deal." Dana has published articles and books about mediation, including Appellate Mediation: A Guidebook for Attorneys and Mediators. She loves teaching about mediation and has done so throughout the US and internationally, including ten years at Stanford Law School and, more recently, in Harvard Law School's Program on Negotiation, where she co-teaches Mediating Disputes.
Dana is soon to become an Adjunct Professor at the University of Santa Clara, School of Law, where she will serve as Director of Conflict Resolution Programing. Visit Dana's website.
