President, The National Association for Community Mediation (NAFCM)
D.G. Mawn, M.A., J.D., is the current President of the National Association for Community Mediation (NAFCM). As President Mr. Mawn supports the efforts of NAFCM’s members to amplify the voice, aggregate the wisdom and advance the work of community mediation across the continent. His work has strengthened NAFCM’s ability to serve as the hub and voice for community mediation centers and community mediators in both the United States and Canada by anchoring the call to live out the 1964 Civil Rights Act to aid communities and individuals in resolving disputes, disagreements, or difficulties relating to practices that impair the rights of persons in their communities and thereby threaten peaceful relations among them.
Since 2014, he has guided the NAFCM Learning Community, which is funded through the JAMS Foundation. The areas of focus have included: veterans, law enforcement, immigrants, foster care, the older adult, housing insecurity, formerly incarcerated adults, and young adults. He also serves for the Foundation as the grant’s manager with the Association for Conflict Resolution.
Mr. Mawn serves, as well, as senior consultant through Intuitive Synergies LLC in Louisville, Kentucky. He co-developed the Cultural Intuitiveness™ process. Currently, he works at the state level with the State of Indiana’s Division of Mental Health and Addictions to embed these tools and processes into their comprehensive system redesign and program implementation, in order to strengthen their ability to create connected and healthy communities.
