The team working with Mediation Institute are excited to be collaborating with the International Mediation Awareness Week to host a local series of online events in conjunction with mediators throughout the world in November 2021.

The events are designed to improve understanding of the benefits of mediation for professionals and the general community.

Mediation Institute is leading the regional team for Australia however we invite and encourage mediators accredited by other Recognised Mediator Accreditation Bodies (RMAB’s), other professional associations and training providers and practitioners of other forms of appropriate dispute resolution (ADR) to get involved. 

How can you get involved?

There are three main ways you can get involved. That is as a sponsor, presenter or back of house support to assist with event planning and on the day management.

1. Sponsor

Maw Sponsorship

There are options to sponsor as an individual, to sponsor an event or for corporate sponsorship.

Sponsorship provides visibility for your business and is appropriate for mediation businesses as well as service providers for mediators such as insurance companies and others.
