My name is Pashtana Abedi and I’m writing to submit as a nominee to serve on the SCMA Board. Nourishing and facilitating seamless transmissions of information is of great value to me, and is reflected throughout my work. After earning my master’s degree from the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, I started my own mediation practice, Abedi Dispute Resolution (ADR), which is a result of my enthusiasm for peaceful conflict management and resolution. Paying attention to detail with diligence and effecting proper communication measures is my passion.
I believe that my experiences coupled with my deep appreciation for conflict resolution makes me a qualified candidate for the position. I know how to share information with clarity, and how to encourage parties to allow for constructive, authentic exchanges. Being successful at such tasks require patience and a positive attitude. I’m eager to learn, to apply old and new knowledge, and to create understanding anywhere I can. It would be an honor to be immersed in an environment in which I can have a hand in furthering our common goal of making dispute resolution available on a grand scale. I’m optimistic that my dedication to the position will bear beneficial fruit.
