ACR-GNY promotes learning and dialogue within the conflict resolution community. This Commercial & Employment Practice Group has been meeting regularly since 2019 from 6:00 - 7:15pm on Zoom. The Practice Group is a confidential space where mediators can come together to share puzzling or challenging moments and give one another honest feedback.
April Guest Facilitator is Carmen Rodriguez
