Community Conversation: Building Mediation Capacity in Communities Divided by ‘Peace Walls’, 29 August 2017 at 3 PM in Ireland, Online
Panelists: Dr Kieran Doyle, Assistant Director, Kennedy Institute for Conflict Intervention; Dr Roisin Smith, Research Fellow, Kennedy Institute for Conflict Intervention; and Dr Margaret Nugent, Project Manager, Kennedy Institute for Conflict Intervention; will deliver this webinar on the development and delivery of a cross-community mediation programme in Belfast city.
The capacity-building programme was developed in partnership between the Kennedy Institute for Conflict Intervention (KICI), Maynooth University and a cross-community network which promotes interface relations in the fractured environment still dealing with the effects of 30 years of intense violence. The webinar will describe the development and delivery of innovative approaches to complex relations along the 10-mile stretch of so-called ‘peace walls’. The webinar will include a description of the role of reflective learning and the cross-community liaison person or ‘interpreter of the environment’ who helped both participants and delivery staff achieve some unexpected positive outcomes.
The discussion will also explore the origins of the KICI—describing how KICI established and maintained effective working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, including with those most disengaged from civic life. Register here.

Should Women Negotiate Like Men? From 26 July 2017
This webinar explores salary negotiations, asks whether womens’ negotiation skills should be different than mens’, and identifies whether this is due to the skills of women or the perceptions of their opponents in a negotiation. The webinar was presented by Dr. Judith Stilz Ogden, Assistant Dean, MBA Director, Director of the Center for Business and International Negotiation at Clayton State University, AAUW Facilitator for Salary Negotiation; and Dr. Diane Fulton, Professor of Management, Associate Director of the Center for Business and International Negotiation at Clayton State University on 26 July 2017. Dr. Ogden and Dr. Fulton are members of the Sierra Leone Project (SLP) and proceeds of this purchase will benefit the SLP. The SLP is planning to start an Institute for Leadership and Peace Building to serve as the umbrella organization for the on-going SLP, and to eventually expand to a wider West African community. Initially, the institute would implement a Women’s Leadership Empowerment Program for emerging women political leaders in Sierra Leone to enhance their leadership skills with topics such as identification of root causes of situations, problem solving, action planning, negotiating tools, consensus building, and communication for change.
