The Inter-Cultural Taskforce of the IMI Independent Standards Commission
(ISC) <http://imimediation.org/intercultural-taskforce> , after a year of
meetings and consultation, is publishing for comment Draft Criteria for the
planned IMI Inter-Cultural Competency Certification of Mediators.
Organisations approved by the ISC as an Inter-Cultural Qualifying Assessment
Program (ICQAP) will assess mediators for their mastery of inter-cultural
dynamics and qualify mediators for IMI Inter-Cultural Certification. The
launch of this new initiative is planned for late 2011 following a public
consultation period and testing of the criteria in a pilot program.
This initiative has attracted much interest and support from users,
mediators, trainers and providers and will be presented at the Annual Spring
Conference of the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution in Denver in April 2011.
Comments on the criteria are invited by April 30, 2011 and can be sent to
intercultural@IMImediation.org. All comments received will be greatly
appreciated and individually acknowledged.
