2022 AUSTRALIAN INTERNATIONAL MEDIATION AWARENESS WEEK

Our mission is to increase the use of Mediation to help resolve disputes without the waste and emotional and financial costs of going to court or doing nothing!

 

Since 2021 Australian Mediation Awareness Week has been collaborating with the International Mediation Awareness Week to run a global Mediation Awareness Week in November each year.

 

#AuMAW is now working in collaboration with the International Mediation Awareness Week to provide Australian dispute resolution professionals with a global voice as we engage, educate and inform the Australian community about the benefits of ADR (appropriate dispute resolution)
