Workshop: Career Development for Conflict Resolution Professionals with Todd Drucker


Sep 30, 2016 - 9:30 a.m.


Columbia University, Faculty House (116th St. bet. Amsterdam and Morningside Dr.)

Note that this event is at capacity. Due to high demand, we will hold another career workshop in early 2017. Those already on the waitlist will have priority registration if space does not open up this month.

Finding a rewarding career path in the conflict resolution profession is rarely a straightforward endeavor. For those starting out, the prospect of finding ideal employment can be an overwhelming and daunting task. Similarly, for those in existing conflict resolution careers, learning how to shift gears to achieve greater career satisfaction (and success) can also be a challenge.

In this full-day workshop, led by Todd Drucker, Senior Practice Development Manager at JAMS and incoming President of the Association for Conflict Resolution – Greater New York Chapter (ACR-GNY), you’ll learn that the best career development path is defined by setting short-term and long-term goals, fighting adversity inside and outside of the workplace and learning how to pivot along the way. Attendees will walk away with accessible and actionable career-development tools and an increased awareness of potential paths to career satisfaction in the conflict resolution space.
