The City of Immigrants and Internal Mediation

Albany, New York is a city on the west bank of the Hudson River about 135 miles north of New York City. It is the capital of New York and is 21.8 square miles in size. The city is home to almost 100,000 people.

Albany is considered the "City of Immigrants." People from all over the world have moved to this area. The location was first dominated by Dutch and Germans but was overtaken by the English back in the 19th century. Irish immigrants later dominated the population but they were soon intermixed with Italians and Poles who started moving to the area. In the mid-to-late 20th century, there was a rise in the African-American population. A Jewish community saw rise during the 19th century in this area, and Albany saw an influx of Chinese and east Asian immigrants in the downtown of this city at the same time.

According to data collected by the 2010 U.S. Census, the racial makeup of Albany is as follows:

  • 57% White
  • 30.8% African-American
  • 0.3% Native American
  • 5.0% Alaskan
  • 0.01% Native Hawaiian
  • 3.7% two or more races
  • 10.6% Hispanic or Latino

With so many different rich cultures thriving in Albany, there can often be cultural disputes in the workplace. I am a skilled Albany mediator that understands how to help parties overcome cultural difficulties and misunderstandings in Albany. I have lived in various cultures around the world, so I am able to carefully and sensitively guide discussions between parties of various culture backgrounds. I want to facilitate a resolution in international mediation that will help the parties of each culture arrive at a resolution.
