One of the key roles and missions of O'Connor House is to convene stakeholders in civil discussion to solve problems. This process was put into action when O'Connor House, through the Avon Program for Women and Justice was honored to partner with Vital Voices and the Diane Halle Center for Family Justice to host the first International Global Mentoring Program. Funded through a grant from the Avon Foundation for Women, these three organizations worked collaboratively to produce a two week training and mentoring program for women leaders from ten countries.
