On March 1, 2 and 3, 2020 DCP hosted the Project’s Second Academy Intiative in Chicago, Illinois. Working in partnership with the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution, DCP used its reports, case studies, simulations, and tools to train diverse leadership groups from four communities:
- Bloomington, Indiana
- Charlotte, North Carolina
- Indianapolis, Indiana
- Midwest City, Oklahoma
Funded by the AAA-ICDR Foundation, the Academy is desinged to
- Strengthen conflict resolution-related planning and capacity building.
- Support and strengthen the development of a local ‘core’ leadership convener group for four communities.
- Provide planning opportunities for each core leadership group.
