Among Wendy's contributions to the conflict transformation and peacebuilding field here in Canada are years of teaching and course development at the Mindanao Peacebuilding Institute (the Philippines), the Resolution Skills Centre/Mediation Services (Winnipeg) and most recently at the Northeast Asia Regional Peacebuilding Institute in Korea and Japan. Her work with the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) has seen her and her family spend five years working in the Philippines, assisting in strategic planning and training for the peace programs in India and Bangladesh and most recently resourcing the program in Palestine and Laos.
