As Co Chair of the Board of the International Mediation Institute (IMI), I am pleased to announce the elevation of Laura Skillen to Executive Director.
Laura first joined IMI on a contract basis. She quickly demonstrated her value to the Board and to the IMI Community. She agreed to take on the responsibilities as Director of External Relations, a position she has held for over a year. During that time, she has transformed the IMI website, engaged volunteers to develop newsletters and communications, put power into the hands of certified mediators and Qualifying Assessment Programs to update their information on the IMI website, and rolled out a pathway for mediators to progress in their profession, among other initiatives. Laura did this and more while working on a part-time basis and pursuing her Phd.
Laura is a terrific asset to the entire IMI community. Please join me in congratulating her on this well-deserved promotion.
