Many of us have been exposed to words and ideas about gender that are new to us, but the expanse of gender beyond the woman-man binary is old. How might we think about gender in ways that increase our joys, connections, and freedoms?

Leeland West’s workshop will review basic concepts related to gender diversity, discuss the legacy of colonialism and the gender binary, and practice self-exploration through the lens of gender.

During his workshop, Leeland will:

  • Review basic concepts and terminology related to gender diversity.
  • Discuss how colonial histories created the woman-man gender binary.
  • Practice self-exploration and disclosure around gendered experiences.

This workshop will utilize an actual dispute that was settled in one session of mediation, to highlight some of the features of the evaluative mediation process, addressing such questions as:

  • Why start with a Joint Session, when so many practitioners have moved to proceeding straight into caucusing?
  • How does one initiate a meaningful dialogue about risks and options, so as to provide decision makers with an expanded and refined data set?
  • If the process is not focused on conveying offers and demands, how do you crystallize final settlement decisions?
