Organizational Development, Training

Kylie Millbern joined TMG at the beginning of 2015 as she completed her Master’s degree in Conflict Resolution from the University of Massachusetts, Boston.  Her Master’s project took her to the Middle East where she worked with Ultimate Peace, a coexistence sports program, uniting Israeli and Palestinian youth through Ultimate Frisbee.  Kylie created an evaluation program that is now being continued and adapted by a partnership between UMass Boston and Ultimate Peace.  She received the Ambassador John W. McDonald Award for Leadership and Innovation in Global Governance and Conflict Resolution for her work on the project.

Since joining TMG, Kylie has worked with the organizational team in a variety of roles on numerous projects.  Most recently she played an active role facilitating a 2-day retreat for the staff and executive board members of a local union.  This retreat was one piece of a larger Real Time Strategic Change process.  She participated and assisted the organizational team during diversity and leadership work with the City of Cambridge.  She facilitated a group during the Cambridge Leadership Initiative Capstone event, which assisted participants in creating useful and immediate steps toward positive change.

Prior to TMG, Kylie acted as a process consultant for a graduate level class within the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security, and Global Governance at UMass Boston under the guidance of Eben Weitzman, Ph.D.  Kylie completed mediation training and has volunteered her time as a Small Claims Court mediator in Dorchester and Quincy Courts.  Kylie currently serves as the treasurer of the Board of Directors for the New England Association of Conflict Resolution (NE-ACR).
