The Polish section of GEMME received the prestigious “Ambassador of Mediation” award from the (Polish) National Chamber of Legal Advisors.

On 14 June in Warsaw took place the gala organised by the National Chamber of Legal Advisors (Krajowa Rada Radców Prawnych (KRRP))  where Agnieszka Owczarewicz (President of GEMME Polska) and Monika Włodarczyk (Vice-President of GEMME) received the "Ambassador of Mediation" award, which in its fifth edition has been awarded to GEMME Polish National Section.

As the President of the National Chamber of Legal Advisors, Włodzimierz Chróścik, emphasised in his speech, "This distinction is not only a reward, but above all an expression of recognition for work that is not always noticed. I thank the winners for their tireless work on behalf of our citizens. Your work is an inspiration and proof that selfless help is of great importance. You have a good heart and use your knowledge for a very noble purpose. You are role models.”
