MWI Mediator Roundtables

Roundtables bring mediators and other practitioners together to discuss new ideas, strengthen ADR skills and to provide opportunities to learn from and engage with top-notch presenters from the conflict resolution community. Roundtables are free for all active MWI mediators. For those who are not active MWI mediators, we welcome you to attend up to one free Roundtable per calendar year. Thereafter, those who are not MWI mediators are still welcome to register, but with a $50 fee for attendance.

RSVP is required by registering below. Registration will close 48 hours prior to the start of the event.

COVID-19 Update: Due to health risk concerns, MWI will hold all upcoming Roundtables via video conferencing. For information about MWI’s COVID-19 policy click here.

Presenter: Megan Winkeler, Director of Training & Engagement
Location: Online webinar. Once you register, you will be sent a link to access the Roundtable.

Sometimes we build our expertise as mediators through challenging cases and advanced skills training, but we can also build our expertise by reviewing the basics and reinforcing a strong foundation of skills and practices. Whether you recently completed mediation training or you have been mediating for many years, we can all benefit from revisiting mediation best practices.

In this online Roundtable webinar, we will review the following important topics:

  1. The principles of mediation
  2. Interactive listening skills
  3. How to remain facilitative (even when things are tough)

Because of the importance of this topic, two different sessions will be offered to accommodate different mediators’ schedules. Each session will cover the same topics, so you only need to attend one.


To register for an MWI Mediator Roundtable, please complete the form below, indicating the date and name of the Roundtable you wish to enroll in. Megan Winkeler, MWI’s Director of Training & Engagement, will be in touch within two business days to confirm your registration. The confirmation will include a link and information to access the online meeting.
