Tuesday, Jan 13: Gender Issues in Mediation and Negotiation
Do men and women negotiate differently? If so, how so? And what should mediators do about it?
Are we obliged to try to redress gender-based power differentials between parties? How might the mediator's gender affect the process or the outcome?
In this interactive session, presenter Emily Epstein will share recent studies about gender and negotiation and facilitate a discussion about the implications for your practice.
