Ann Martin

Community Impact Committee Chair

Ann worked with Cornell’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) as a Senior Extension Associate and, at times, Associate Dean. She taught interest-based bargaining to labor leaders and managers, facilitated negotiations, was a consultant on organizational change processes, and engaged whole organizations in strategic planning. The point of entry for much of her work was conflict, allowing her to use skills and knowledge gained as a community mediator with Tompkins County’s Community Dispute Resolution Center, as well as what she’d learned in a Masters program at ILR. Late in her career, she earned a doctorate in adult education at Teacher’s College, Columbia, just to understand what she’d been doing all along. That “doing” had included, in addition to the Cornell job, a term on the Ithaca Board of Education, chairing the CDRC Board, and teaching adults in Norway how to conduct research with people rather than on people.

In retirement, Ann has worked with the Building Bridges Steering Committee and as Associate Research Fellow with the Dorothy Cotton Institute. She carries on her deep commitment to social justice in Tompkins County as a Family Advocate with the Village at Ithaca, a community mediator, and a volunteer facilitator when groups ask for help. She is most interested in finding ways for agencies and individuals to work together across habitual boundaries.
