Dispute Resolution Neutral Cultural Competence | What Does this Mean?

1.0 Ethics CLE Credit

The Rule 114 Code of Ethics states that “A neutral shall serve as a neutral only when she/he has the necessary qualifications to satisfy the reasonable expectations of the parties.” The 1997 comments include the following additional insight; “A person who offers neutral services gives parties and the public the expectations that she or he is competent to serve effectively as a neutral.” Building on last year’s presentation that raised the question as to whether “whiteness is embedded in mediation,” this year, Dr. T. Anansi Wilson and Professor Sharon Press will offer their thoughts on how competence must include cultural competence and then explore what that means as applied to ADR neutrals.
