a mediator & diversity specialist

Lia is a mediator and diversity specialist who is fascinated by the ways that communities and institutions (like the Church of England!) deal with conflict.

She balances her consultancy practice alongside her academic work as a geographer-theologian at the University of Roehampton, where she serves as Associate Chaplain of Whitelands College.

Previously, Lia worked with the grassroots peacebuilding process in Northern Ireland and developed the national diversity strategy for the British Methodist Church.
