MTI Presents
18th Annual Conflict Resolution and Mediation Conference

We hope you can join us virtually at the 18th Annual Conflict Resolution and Mediation Conference on June 22-24, 2021!

The focus of this year’s conference is on Navigating Our Conflicted World. All of us have had to face many changes this year as COVID, racial equality and the United States presidential election have added many challenges to an already conflicted world. More so than ever, we realize that conflict resolution is an essential leadership skill that transcends far beyond the workplace, and the need for professionals who can help others with these vital skills is paramount.
