Here is an example of online mediation of a workplace discrimination case with:
- Mediator: Samantha Park (in England)
- Employees: Ben Davies (in England) and Joe Lewis (in Maryland, USA)
- Employees’ Manager: Kristen Blankley (in Nebraska, USA)
In order to make this simulation as real as possible, one participant (Joe Lewis) was an actor, and not a mediator.
During the debriefing session (the second part of our simulation) we discussed briefly why it is so helpful for mediators to hear from the participants who played the parties’ roles what worked well or not-so-well during their mediation.
