I first "met" Zena Zumeta when she interviewed me for The Texas Conflict Coach. Prior to the radio show, we had a great conversation, plus some subsequent emails, and found much in common. For example, both of us have been involved with mediation since the early '80s and share some similar concerns about how the field has developed.
Due to the generosity of Wayne State, we all may hear her speak next week, either live or via the Web. All the details here.
Our featured speaker is Ann Arbor-based Zena Zumeta. Zena has been practicing mediation since 1982, and has seen many changes in the field and in practice during that time. She will take the opportunity to reflect on the practice of mediation today, the hopes for the field 30 years ago, and her experiences along the way. The journey has been both eventful and satisfying. Come journey with her, and bring your own questions and reflections!
This event, I am looking forward to.
