Diane Gold

As a workplace mediator, I help employers resolve workplace conflict in a convenient, timely and cost effective way.  In additional to workplace disputes involving discrimination, harassment and retaliation, I also mediate employee relations issues such as respect, communication, inter-personal conflict, management styles, clarity of roles, expectations, boundaries, authority, workplace behavior, and the overall health of the organization.

My practice includes both legal and non-legal matters.

My services are available virtually and in the Washington DC metro area.

ADR Experience

I received training in workplace mediation from the Northern Virginia Mediation Service in 2001 and have successfully mediated cases for large and small private organizations, non-profits and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  Additional conflict resolution experience includes my service as an Arbitrator with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), including my training and service as a Chairperson.


I use a facilitative approach where I help parties collaborate in order to:  identify and clarify issues, explore creative options for resolving issues, and reach a mutually satisfactory agreement.  The parties can be and feel heard and can create their own agreement for moving forward.  This process restores harmony, communication and trust to the workplace.
