I am happy to announce that Professor Ellen Waldman and her colleague Susan Bisom-Rapp , along with a terrific organizing committee, are co-organizing a conference at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, which will be held on Friday, February 9th. The 18th Annual Women and the Law Conference is titled “Her Place at the Bargaining Table: Gender, Negotiation and ‘Risky’ Decision-Making.” The key-note speaker is the economist Professor Linda Babcock, who will be discussing her book, “Women Don’t Ask” as well as more current research. Additional speakers include Professor Charles Craver, Israeli academic Thalma Lobel and sociologist Beth Chung. The conference will also feature leaders in the legal community as well as a panel of prominent neutrals who will discuss the role that gender plays in the negotiation trenches. Additional details about the conference are available in the graphic below. As readers of the blog know, this is a subject near and dear to me. I am so sorry to have to miss this so I encourage all who can attend to do so!
