Lois Glenn-Carter FOUNDER,
Nationwide Black Mediation Services, LLC is a survivor of domestic abuse including physical, emotional, and financial that she endured throughout her 14-years of marriage.
She is the former wife of a Pastor who has experienced the shame and ridicule from other clergy members as she sought refuge and safety as a result of the abuse and defamation of character by her former spouse. The lack of accountability and support from within the “Black Church” for a Black Family was a pivotal moment in Ms. Glenn-Carter Life.
Lois Glenn-Carter challenged various members of the New York State Suffolk County Family Court on systematic abuse of power when her estranged husband used false child abuse claims, against her to further afflict abusive tactics during their custody and divorce proceedings.
As a result Lois Glenn-Carter studied and adapted a facilitative, cultural interest-based approach to support the Black Families.
Her preferred mediation style is facilitative in the belief wholeheartedly that the best and most durable resolutions for Black Families are those achieved by the parties themselves. She educates the parties generally on the business issues and priorities, personalities and obstacles to a successful resolution as well as their own needs better than any mediator or arbitrator. She does not impose her views or make decisions for the parties. Rather, Lois educates and assists the parties in creating options that meet the needs and desires of both sides, by guiding them back to their own authority and power. When appropriate, visual aids are used in preparing discussions and illustrating possible solutions.
On the other hand, she is not averse to being proactive and offering a generous dose of reality, particularly when the process may have stalled due to unrealistic expectations of attorney or client, a failure to focus on needs rather than demands, or when one or more parties need to be reminded of the potential consequences of their failure to reach an agreement.
