Mediation—Does Gender Matter?

March 29, 2018, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Women in Law Series: Mediation—Does Gender Matter?

Co-sponsored by the Women Lawyers of Alameda County

As society shines a spotlight on gender dynamics across sectors, we will explore and critically analyze the ways gender impacts mediation of civil cases. Panelists will discuss the impact of litigator and mediator gender on mediator selection, approaches to mediation, effectiveness and participation in mediation. How can (and should) we encourage a more conscious and gender neutral approach by all mediation consumers and service providers? Do male and female litigators negotiate and/or utilize the mediation process differently?

Panelists include: Rachel Ehrlich, Jessica Notini, and Irene Takahashi

Moderated by WLAC Board Member, Ms. Leslie Levy
