The non-profit Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center will host a free talk on March 18 as part of their “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace” Brown Bag Lunch Series. Talks are Third Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom.

This month’s speaker is Peter S. Adler on the topic “What is Excellence? Approaches to Merit & Distinction in Mediation.”

“Mediation isn’t just one thing; it’s many. Practitioners work in different domains, with different preferences, styles, and models in mind,” says Adler. “Some view mediation as a profession, others as a field, and still others as a philosophy of life.”

In this talk, learn common cross-cutting principles worth exploring and some common ideas about moving toward mediation mastery.

Peter S. Adler, PhD is a planner, mediator, facilitator, and a Principal at ACCORD3.0, a professional network of consultants specializing in foresight, strategy, and cooperative trouble-shooting. He was President and CEO of The Keystone Center, Executive Director of the Hawai‘i Justice Foundation, and founding Director of the Hawai‘i Supreme Court’s Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution. Adler is the author of four non-fiction books and a forthcoming novel.


Ku‘ikahi’s Brown Bag Lunch Series is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to enjoy an informal and educational talk-story session and connect with others interested in “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace.”
