“A Day in the (Conflict) Life”: How to handle common causes of tension in a non-profit organization

  •  April 20, 2023
     10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In this interactive presentation, participants will be presented with three conflict situations that may arise in non-profits on any given day–a meeting that goes badly, having to give/receive feedback, and having to initiate a difficult conversation. These scenarios will be used to teach participants strategies they can use to navigate these situations more skilfully. Participants will have opportunities for practice and discussion and will leave the workshop with tools they can immediately use the next time these conflict situations rear their head in the organization.



Dr. Gonzales entered the field of conflict engagement after practicing for several years as an attorney, primarily in the area of Family Law, in the Supreme Court of Trinidad & Tobago. She holds a Master of Laws in Dispute Resolution from Pepperdine University School of Law as well as a Doctor of Philosophy in Conflict Analysis & Resolution from Nova Southeastern University. She is a former Assistant Professor at Creighton University where she designed and taught various courses in the Negotiation & Conflict Resolution Program.

After working with the Western Justice Center Foundation in Pasadena, California, she went on to provide mediation, facilitation, and system design services to and trainings in the Caribbean region.

In 2020, Dr. Gonzales shifted her focus to the provision of online conflict management education and conflict interventions for non-profits and social enterprises, as well as individual conflict coaching for non-profit leaders. She balances her life with yoga, long walks, gardening and cooking things she likes to
