sym·po·si·a [sim-poh-zee-uh]. a meeting or conference for the discussion of some subject, especially a meeting at which several speakers talk on or discuss a topic before an audience... - dictionary.com
The Dictionary of Oxford languages defines a Symposium as: 'a conference or meeting to discuss a particular subject.'
At a Symposium, industry experts highlight recent discoveries and research in a given field. Thus contributing to developments of the sector, industry and areas of study. Typically hosted over one day, a symposium is less hands-on than a workshop and smaller than a conference.
Throughout the year, the WASILIANAHUB mediators community creates opportunities to engage through meetups in-person and virtual. WASILIANAHUB hosts a Mediation Day Symposium every quarter and the annual Strategy 20 Conference now hosted within the African International Mediation (AIM) Week.
*The quarter one Mediation Day Symposium hosted in the month of March 'fits snuggly' and has since become the International Women's Day event for the mediation community in Kenya.
Women in Mediation Leadership (WIML) on the occasion of the International Women's Day 2021 (#IWD2021) has chosen the theme "Voices in the Changing World" aligned to the International Women's Day hashtag #ChooseToChallenge.
The events of the day running over 15 hours will respond to the broad question: "How Might We Design The Women As Professional Mediators in Kenya Agenda?".
