Ginny Morrison, JD, is President of Collaboration Specialists, with more than two decades of experience in conflict management, corrections conditions, management and international peacebuilding. She applies her expertise through facilitation, mediation, coaching, training, and leading dialogues, as the situation requires.

Ms. Morrison is committed to the principle that every human being deserves respect and dignity, and her work is modeled upon a collaborative, responsive approach that aims to bridge even the most diverse worlds and expectations. Her practice is dedicated to the development of empathy as a key to forging work and community bonds and to affecting change at personal, community, and organizational levels.

Though it would be naïve to suggest that every conflict can be resolved or that peace can always be restored, Ms. Morrison’s focus remains on the essential nature of engagement, on the task of eliciting meaningful participation from all stakeholders, and on reinforcing the recognition that interdependence remains both our most effective strategy and one of our most enduring strengths.

Ms. Morrison is a founding member of Mediators Beyond Borders and currently co-leads its peacebuilding initiative in Liberia, which aims to reconcile former child soldiers and women within communities. In other international work, she has trained military, rebel forces, and corrections and government personnel in managing conflict; conducted coalition-building among women, NGOs, and sheiks in Iraq; supported university student peacebuilding in Sierra Leone; is advancing interfaith dialogue in Nigeria; and is working to promote peace among Kenyan pastoralists.
