In celebration of International Women’s Day, we would like to invite you for a discussion on the experiences of women working in the field of mediation. We will ask our distinguished speakers to share their stories of if, and if so, how gender has affected their work as mediators from the perspective of their respective cultures. This will be followed by the Q&A session on the role of women in the mediation field in the intercultural context.

This event is organized within the framework of the Comenius Senior Fellow Project on Trust MEdiators funded by the NRO. The project aims to develop a training model in soft mediation skills through a mediation lab in efforts to popularize mediation as a societal tool at THUAS and beyond.
