Now in its third year, the JAMS Foundation offered Weinstein International Fellowships to 13 ADR professionals from the around the world. This year’s class includes countries like Armenia, Brazil, China, Greece and India. Though they are from very different cultures, they all share the common goal of furthering the growth of ADR around the world.  Because many of the Fellows work alone in their respective countries, laboring in near obscurity, the Weinstein program also gives them the chance to make professional connections that will sustain them when they return home.

Over the week of September 6-11, all 13 fellows and members of the JAMS Foundation gathered at the JAMS San Francisco Resolution Center and the Weinstein Mediation Centerin Napa Valley for training and networking. The weekend gives them the opportunity to meet their colleagues, develop personal and professional relationships and discuss the future of ADR.

“These are the hidden heroes and heroines who are making a direct impact on conflict resolution in their home countries,” said Judge Weinstein.

“Our aim is to find these individuals and teach them tactics in support of global ADR,” said Jay Folberg, JAMS Foundation executive director.on conflict resolution in their home countries,” said Judge Weinstein.
