It is with a heavy heart that that I inform you of the passing of Susan Dubow today. Susan was the owner of Mediation Training Group where she conducted mediation training in Florida. Susan was a Past President of the Florida Academy of Professional Mediators, Inc. Susan was on the Florida Dispute Resolution Center’s MEAC Ethics Board. Susan was a past ADR Director in the Broward County courthouse.

Susan Dubow was a visionary in the field of conflict resolution and her legacy remains the over 15,000 certified mediators in Florida that she trained.

Susan was a mentor, a colleague and a dear friend. Susan has been a major force for me and my mediation career and for many others in the mediation and ADR community. Many of FAPM’s Board of Directors and members were trained in mediation by Susan.

In recent years, I had the privilege of working alongside Susan as a trainer in her divorce mediation training course. I describe Susan as knowledgeable and entertaining, giving and kind and as a person who lived her life with the highest standards of ethics.

Susan will be missed dearly by us all.

The funeral will be on Tuesday at 3:15 pm, at Star of David, 7701 Bailey Road, North Lauderdale, Fl 33068.
