Kari Boyle and Sterling Nelson will lead a panel discussion on “generational” differences in the experiences and understanding of dispute resolution professionals entering the field at different points in the development of mediation in BC. Supported by the results of a survey administered by Mediate BC, the panel will discuss such questions as:

  • can we define cohorts, or “generations”, of mediation practitioners and compare them in terms of early motivations, practice areas, and mediation activity?
  • how could possible differences align with the major developments in BC’s mediation history?
  • what can this information tell us about where the practice of mediation is heading in BC?

The larger Mediate BC survey will to gather, for the first time, data on mediation trends in volume, type and “success” of mediation in the province. The results will create a rich resource to assist in promoting mediation business.

If you are a practicing mediator please take approximately 15 minutes to complete the survey.
