As PON’s Global Programs Manager, Abigayle oversees PON Global program activities. PON Global is a blended learning initiative that combines on-site instruction, educational videos, and Zoom to bring PON’s negotiation curriculum to people around the world. In alignment with PON’s mission to make its teaching and research more globally accessible, PON Global courses have been held across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, hosted in partnership with many different and impressive organizations spanning public and private sectors. Abigayle has been involved since the 2015 Tokyo pilot and was at the helm for its transition online due to the Covid-19 crisis.
Before Harvard Law School, Abigayle worked in foreign language services, localizing university programs for global audiences, planning international conferences, and expanding GSA contracts. She was instrumental in setting up a medical interpreter training program, available in 20+ languages, and heading a robust foreign internship program.
Abigayle received her BA from McGill University in Middle Eastern Studies, with double minors in Advanced East Asian Languages and Hispanic Literature. She recently completed her ALM in International Relations (with honors) from the Harvard Extension School, completed in tandem with her work developing PON Global.
Motivated by both international relations and conflict resolution, she has made these passions her profession. An avid adventurer, she enjoys an afternoon at any museum, or a good book, just as much.
