Our People

Singapore International Mediation Institute (SIMI) has a committed but small team of full time staff working across Policy, Research, Outreach, Communications, Membership, and Administration to ensure SIMI achieves the goals set out in our vision to be the vanguard of mediation in Asia.

Our Board of Directors are made up of committed individuals and we are extremely grateful to them for their time, expertise and support.

We are also very fortunate to have both the support of the Ministry of Law, as well as the National University of Singapore
