Introduction to Conflict Resolution
The Office of Equality and Diversity (OED) has a mediation program for the resolution of complaints of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and of workplace issues.
Mediation is offered to all employees, except in circumstances where it would be inappropriate (i.e. where physical violence is alleged or where there is a need for specific findings regarding an individual’s actions).
Drexel believes that mediation and other conflict resolution processes (i.e. conflict coaching) provide an effective means for resolving conflict, increasing productivity, increasing job satisfaction, and decreasing turnover - thereby increasing retention of our valuable employees. Further, the University believes that having an established procedure for managing differences, identifying common interests, and resolving conflict supports its commitment to a diverse and inclusive workforce.
