Giuseppe Leone- Thanks to the kind cooperation of 3 mediators – Dan Simon, Lisa Jacobs, and Ben Davies – who participate in our project Virtual Mediation Lab, today we did something that could benefit HR managers and mediators worldwide.

Specifics about what should be included in your proposal and where to send it are detailed in the Call for Proposals document.
