The Gregory Sobel Diversity in Mediation Scholarship was established as a tribute to the late Gregory Sobel, who was an accomplished mediator and a tireless advocate for increasing diversity in the ADR field.

It seeks to equip current and future ADR practitioners with the knowledge and skills necessary to carry on the work of this prominent peacemaker.
