October 20, 2017 (CHICAGO) – Proskauer’s Adopt-a-School program teamed up with The Center for Conflict Resolution (CRR) to lead a workshop for Muchin Prep students in Chicago, teaching them how to manage conflict and negotiate with others to create durable and meaningful resolutions. This interactive and informative program taught the class how to evaluate conflict through five approaches: competition, accommodation, avoidance, compromise and collaboration.
Proskauer associate Eddie Young introduced this conflict resolution workshop to our Adopt-a-School program. Eddie and associate Alex Weinstein lead the Adopt-a-School initiative in Chicago.
Proskauer’s Adopt-a-School program provides mentoring and enrichment workshops to public school students in five U.S. cities: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, DC.
CCR is an independent, not-for-profit organization with a mission to work with individuals, communities, courts and other institutions to manage and resolve conflict. Partner Steve Gilford serves on CCR’s board.
