"Sharon and Julie asked questions that allowed me to think about my own biases that I bring to practice and created a safe environment where I could start to ask questions about how those might impact different parties at the table."

"Sharon and Julie’s presentation allowed me to look at the different values we bring to mediation through another lens."

"It made me think about my cultural experience impacts the toolkit of process skills I use in mediation."

“I just wish we’d had more time! The discussion about culturally adaptive mentoring and mediation was great!”

Unconscious Cultural Privileging in Mediation

Session 6.2 Saturday, April 30, 2011 1:30 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

For the past four years, Julie and Sharon have worked in various roles in BC’s Child Protection Mediation Project. One important goal of the project was to support either the use of traditional aboriginal dispute resolution models or the development of new models of conflict resolution that respected traditional aboriginal values. Julie and Sharon will share their personal reflections on the challenges that have been overcome and those that continue to create barriers, including the concern that the project could, without great vigilance by all parties, become a tool for “polite assimilation” rather than true cross-cultural dialogue. 

Hear Julie describe why it's so hard to talk about cultural privilege:
