Please join us for the ninth annual Hank Marx Lecture in Dispute Resolution: "Conversations with a Long-time Mediator: Lessons from Experience." The event will be held at the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium in the Law School Bldg. (Grab a flyer with parking map.)

Our featured speaker is Ann Arbor-based Zena Zumeta. Zena has been practicing mediation since 1982, and has seen many changes in the field and in practice during that time. She will take the opportunity to reflect on the practice of mediation today, the hopes for the field 30 years ago, and her experiences along the way. The journey has been both eventful and satisfying. Come journey with her, and bring your own questions and reflections!

Ms. Zumeta is the recipient of numerous awards, among them the National Education Association/Saturn Corporation Award for Union-Management Collaboration; the John Haynes Distinguished Mediator Award from the Association for Conflict Resolution; and the Kumba Award from the National Conference on Minorities in ADR.

Zumeta practices in the areas of family, employment and civil mediation. She teaches mediation in Michigan and nationally and does consulting and conflict intervention in organizations. She is a past board member of the Society of Professionals in Dispute Resolution, a past member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Council of the State Bar of Michigan and past president of the Academy of Family Mediators, the Michigan Council for Family and Divorce Mediation and the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan - Washtenaw Region. She is an Advanced Practitioner member of the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) and has served on many of its committees. Ms. Zumeta has presented at national conferences for the American Bar Association, ACR, and the Association for Family and Conciliation Courts.
