The Washington Mediation Association offers a Fall Conference each year, usually in October but this year on November 3, 2022. The conference was fist called an ``Unconference`` with the goal to bring participants together in an unstructured environment and with their peers, brainstorm answers to the questions of the day. This event has evolved into a full day seminar. A panel of experienced mediators provide new ideas and information in the morning. In the afternoon, participants return to the unconference format to discuss the morning's topics in depth and discuss topics of the day in peer-to-peer setting. The Fall Conference is a virtual conference. The theme for this year's conference is ``Mediation Ethics: Is Trust the Bridge We Use to Cross the Cultural Divide?`` We will explore the intersection of the two concepts - ethics in mediation and cultural differences in conflict resolution to impede the integration of diversity, equity and inclusion in our mediation practices. Join us November 3, 2022, for a fascinating day deeply exploring how we can integrate these concepts.
