    Working in the Office of the Ombudsman for the United Nations Funds and Programmes often means being with International Civil Servants when they perceive incompatibilities between the aspirational values as described in the UN Charter, and the realities of working in hierarchical organizations with flawed humans.  The work of the Office supports these colleagues through informal means as they navigate how to make decisions in this context.  Tamar Gur will share about how she came to work in the United Nations, the work that she has been doing for the past couple of years, and how working in the United Nations has helped her grow as a conflict resolution practitioner.
