2. What does the NIH Office of the Ombudsman do?

The NIH Office of the Ombudsman helps all members of the NIH community to explore and assess options for addressing lab or workplace-related concerns, and provide them with tools and resources to navigate difficult situations and resolve them. We use a variety of conflict-resolution approaches, including negotiation, mediation, group facilitation, peer panels, coaching, and shuttle diplomacy.
