#MwenzanguTuwasiliane: Nairobi Mediators November 2018 Meetup Invitation to Register and Attend


“Technology Transforming The Professional Mediation Practice in Africa”

Dear Mediator & ADR Partner,

Did you know that ‘November is Women In Mediation Leadership Month?’ Now you know!

WASILIANAHUB Mediators Africa, Community Mediation LegalMeds and Community ParaMediators Network in collaboration with other partners are organizing the November 2018 Meetup scheduled to be held at the IBM Innovation Centre, Nairobi (Kilimani).

The Meetup hosted monthly by Certified Mediators is a three-hour quick fire professional development, learning and networking event. We agree that great things happen when #MwenzanguTuwasiliane - Professional Mediators come together.

Our work as a Community of Practice is to support you in building a professional mediation practice and to support your clients in compliance to the Mediation Agreement using innovations in technology. We are a Mediators SkillsBank on a mission to improve the sector’s direct contribution to Kenya’s GDP, The Big 4 and Kenya Vison 2030, and for Africa aligned to AU Vision for Africa and the Global SDGs.

“…Chief Justice David Maraga approved the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) system pilot project introduced in the Judiciary more than two years ago. Since the new system was introduced in 2016, more than Sh3 billion that had been locked up in litigation was freed. A bigger portion of this came from settlements in the Commercial Division of the Judiciary. The cases were among 605 files out of 887 referred to mediation.”*

Details of the event are as follows:

· Title: Nairobi Mediators Meetup - November 2018.

· Theme: Commercial Mediation.

Hi Wangari! Thanks for sharing this opportunity with fellow members. Your post was caught in our spam filter because of its length and content, but I have now approved it. I also tried to improve the formatting and to make it clear that you are sharing an opportunity that was originally sent by email.

I’d like to suggest that you edit it further to add a few lines at the top introducing yourself and your organization to this community, and to explain why you think legal empowerment practitioners should want to be part of your network and attend this event. :seedling:

Do report back here after the event to let us know how it went, and to share any valuable outcomes or learnings.

Greetings Friends,

WASILIANAHUB is an African Mediators SkillsBank building a Community of ParaMediators starting off from Kenya. Our mission is for Africa to build and tap into its own capacity.

Members of our network are currently serving in the Judiciary court annexed mediation and in private practice. As part of our Community Mediation, members offer pro bono mediation in communities.

If you are in Nairobi and work in the grassroots in legal aid, the Friday November 16th 2018 (08:30am) November Mediators Meetup would be of great value to you.

We shall run a Community Mediation segment focused on Design Thinking - Empathy Map journey on the experience of a Kenyan accessing mediation services at the Chief’s. This is to heighten the sensitivity to our pro bono LegalMediators and ParaMeds to better serve clients and disputants in their environment. Mediation Cases range from child maintenance, landlord tenant mediation, neighborly dispute, business commercial mediation, land boundary disputes, inheritance/succession mediation. Empathy EMPOWERS the mediation process.

As you also gain tips on Commercial Mediation (http://kam.co.ke/).

To register please send details to email: [wasilianahubafricamediators@gmail.com] by Friday 9th November 2018.


Blessed day
