How are ADR principles applied in a federal government setting? What are hot topics facing federal ADR practitioners today? How do the Obama Administration’s memoranda on open and collaborative governance impact the work of ADR practitioners to foster better communication and collaboration? Hear more about these broad topics of interest and, more specifically, about one federal agency ADR unit’s first decade of operation preventing and resolving energy conflicts. This event will be hosted in partnership with the Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program.
Deborah is certified in mediation from Pepperdine University’s Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution. She has taken negotiation and advanced negotiation courses at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, and commercial mediation from Northern Virginia Mediation Service. She holds graduate and undergraduate degrees in Anthropology from the George Washington University and Temple University, respectively
Deborah has mediated well over 100 cases involving two and multi-party interests, many leading to multimillion dollar energy settlements and cost-savings to all involved. She has over 250 hours of conflict resolution training and voluntarily mediates cases in Virginia’s General District Courts in Alexandria.
She is grateful to be involved in an ongoing partnership study on energy ADR with the Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program.
