Conflict Resolution Day

Each year on the third Thursday of October, MCWP celebrates Conflict Resolution Day. Conflict Resolution Day was initiated in 2005 by the U.S. Association for Conflict Resolution to increase public awareness about conflict resolution and its many benefits. Conflict Resolution Day is now celebrated in more than 22 states and more than 4 different countries. The City of Pittsburgh and County of Allegheny have issued proclamations recognizing MCWP and Conflict Resolution Day. The MCWP Conflict Resolution Day Award is presented annually in October to recognize a member of the Western Pennsylvania community for their outstanding contributions to the field of mediation. 

Our 2022 Conflict Resolution Day event was held on Thursday, October 20, 2022. Congratulations to our 2022 Conflict Resolution Day Awardee Selina J. Shultz. Many thanks to our speakers Taya R. Cohen, Ph.D. and Robert E. Creo, Esq. We great appreciation to our 2022 Sponsors:
