Find a Mediator or Facilitator

Are you looking for a resolution to an issue or conflict? You need a mediator.

Are you looking to bring a group together to discuss complex or controversial issues, figure out a shared understanding of the issues, and explore how to work together to meet common goals? You need a facilitator.

Work with National Center Mediators and Facilitators

The National Center provides direct facilitation and mediation when

  • Agencies or stakeholders want help selecting a neutral third party;
  • Agencies or stakeholders need help to agree on whether they can work together to reach a common goal;
  • Agencies request National Center staff to address intra-agency disagreements or challenges that interfere with the agency’s ability to participate effectively in larger collaborative processes;
  • An agency prefers to use “federal family” neutral services; or
  • Agencies or stakeholders specifically request National Center staff.
