Incorporating cultural competency in ADR broadens the analytical spectrum of problem-solving, enhances the prospects for successful outcomes, and supports efforts to increase access to justice for all Ontarians. Join Michael F. Charles, lawyer and principal of Change DeZign Consulting to explore tools and strategies to:

  • Make sense of the growing importance of cultural competency in the emerging environment for legal services
  • Reduce unconscious bias for mediators, arbitrators, and advocates
  • Improve your capacity to identify interpersonal impediments to dispute resolution between parties
  • Increase your ability to create an environment for the establishment of trust

Plus, you will receive a confidential individual cultural competency report to better understand your current level of cultural competence.
