2017 Australian ADR Awards Announced

The Australian Alternative Dispute Resolution Awards for 2017 have been announced with a diverse group of winners recognised for their contributions to the development of Alternative Dispute Resolution in Australia in all its forms.

The Honourable Mr Robert French AC, former Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia, and patron of the Australian Disputes Centre (ADC), presented the awards at a ceremony held at Ashurst on August 10th 2017.

Among the winners are:

Mediator of the Year: Mary Walker, a leading member of the Sydney Bar who has championed ADR across a range of disputes and jurisdictions since 1990.

ATSI Mediator of the Year: Bronwyn Penrith, who supports families through Care mediations with enormous integrity and cultural sensitivity.

ADR Project of The Year: Mieke Brandon and Linda Kochanski for their work in developing an online diploma for Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners and their leadership of the National Mediation Conference.

ADR Practitioner of the Year: Georgia Quick, Partner, Ashurst as the lead disputes partner on a range of public and commercial projects.

The ADR Awards are held annually to recognise excellence within the ADR community, to foster the sharing of best practice and to encourage the further development of the field of Alternate Dispute Resolution.

All proceeds from the ADR Awards support the ADC’s National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Mediation Training Scholarship Program. Recognizing the need for dispute resolution within the Aboriginal community, the program has impacted communities directly through facilitating and understanding the importance of peaceful avenues of resolving disputes, all while appreciative of cultural differences.

The full list of award winners is attached. Photos of the winners accepting their awards are available.
