The Diversity, Race and Conflict show series for June is brought to you in partnership with the Maryland Judiciary’s Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO) in Maryland, and with great appreciation to Lou Gieszl and Cheryl Jamison for their dedication and passion to this topic.

During the month of June, we have looked at some tough issues related to diversity. We started the month looking at the fear embedded in racism. Next, we moved to the political arena and discussed why good people are divided. On June 19, there was a discussion of the meaning and importance of Juneteenth. Now, it is time to hear from you. We will be taking your calls as we have a conversation with Cheryl Jamison and Lou Gieszl about race, conflict, reconciliation and the roles we can all play in promoting and celebrating diversity.

Lou Gieszl is the Deputy Executive Director of the Maryland Judiciary’s Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office and is the immediate past-president of the Association for Conflict Resolution. He has a Masters of Public Policy Degree and teaches graduate-level courses on conflict management at two universities in Maryland.

Cheryl Jamison, also works at MACRO and is responsible for a statewide program designed to assist mediators enhancing their mediation practice. She is the former Vice President of the Association for Conflict Resolution. An attorney, mediator and trainer, Cheryl is currently teaching a class on Race and Conflict at the University of Baltimore.
