ACR-GNY promotes learning and dialogue within the ADR community. This Commercial & Employment Practice Group has been meeting since 2019. It meets the 4th Monday of every month from 6pm to 7:15pm on Zoom. The Practice Group is a confidential space where mediators can come together to share puzzling moments and give each other honest feedback.

March's guest facilitator will be JoAn Pangilinan-Taylor, Vice President of Mediation & Training of Community Mediation Services (CMS) 

March’s Topic: Navigating Biased Talk in Mediation

The intrusion of bias talk in mediation has often left mediators struggling with the questions: “What do I do with this? and “What is the right thing to do with this”? JoAn will facilitate conversation with fellow mediators on our experiences and challenges with bias talk in mediation and how we navigate support to the parties given our impartial role in the process.

JoAn Pangilinan-Taylor, V.P. of Mediation & Training of CMS is in charge of the development and supervision of mediation programs in Queens Civil Court, Surrogate's Court, Housing Court, Family Court, Community Mediation, Special Education Mediation, Desk Appearance Ticket Mediation, Family and Divorce Mediation and Lemon Law Arbitration. She also oversees the growth and development of CMS training programs including the Basic Mediation Training, Apprenticeship Training, Conflict Coaching and Restorative Justice practices. As a certified mediator, JoAn has mediated over hundreds of civil, community, and family mediation cases. She received her Juris Doctor degree from Northern Illinois University in 2004 and is a member of the Illinois State Bar since 2005. Prior to her work in mediation, JoAn was involved in various disciplines all of which influence her work in mediation.
