A Statement from the IAM Board of Governors

The International Academy of Mediators (IAM) is profoundly grief-stricken by the killings, the long history of racism, profiling, and targeting of the Black community, communities of colour, and all other minorities worldwide. Our organization is comprised of leading professional mediators from around the world, whose life’s work depends on people listening to, understanding and considering divergent points of view with an open mind. We are committed, with our hearts open, to engage in meaningful and challenging dialogue within our organization and within our communities to address the pain and suffering caused by these injustices and to help foster understanding and healing.
