“I was delighted to receive the inaugural Service to Dispute Resolution Award.  It really means a lot to be recognised by your peers and other leaders in the field for the work that you do, and even more so when you are very passionate about it. It’s lovely to know that your work is valued by others and that you have had a positive impact on the field,” said 2021 Award recipient Samantha Hardy.

“I would urge anyone who knows a Dispute Resolution practitioner who is an outstanding leader in their community to come forward and nominate them. They could be a dispute resolution practitioner in any dispute resolution context or could be someone whose work is in support of a dispute resolution process,” said Ms. Williams.

Nominations close 27 November 2021 and successful applicants will be notified in early 2022.
