This summer, the Center for Dialog & Resolution is bringing in the community! CDR is partnering with the University of Puget Sound in an all-new program and inviting two interns, Emma Ferguson and Will Henderson, to work with the staff of the Center.
Emma, a native of Chicago, is majoring in Politics and Government, with a minor in Gender & Queer Studies. When not hard at work, Emma loves dogs and is active at Dogspotting. She chose to work with the Center because of a desire to learn about mediation and the nonprofit world. From San Rafael, Will is also a Politics and Government major. With an emphasis in International Relations, Will became fascinated by international conflict and decided to take the opportunity to study conflict- and ways to resolve it- on a smaller scale at the Center. In his free time, Will has learned Arabic and enjoys surfing and basketball.
In addition to our summer interns, CDR also has a community intern, Beth Do! Beth comes to us from New York. She graduated from Case Western Reserve University, majoring in Art History and minoring in French and Francophone Studies. After a recommendation from a friend, Beth became curious about conflict resolution and visited the Center. Impressed by mediation and the skills of the individuals she met, she made the commitment to spend her summer working and learning at the Center!
