Choose one track at time of registration. These tracks will meet each morning. Participants also meet daily as a group to experience other workshop leaders and the community as a whole.

Fox has been teaching with the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School since 1996, and builds her work on the teaching of her mentors, including Robert Mnookin, Frank E.A. Sander, Michael Wheeler, Roger Fisher, and William Ury. She also serves on the Harvard Mediation Program’s advisory board and the board of directors of Mediation Works Incorporated.
Fox’s research focuses on barriers to self-advocacy in difficult negotiations, and ways to overcome these barriers. She is currently writing a book based on her article, “Alone in the Hallway: Challenges to Effective Self-Representation in Negotiation,” which appeared in the first issue of the Harvard Negotiation Law Review.
In Part 1, Erica talks about how her faith played a part in her career path, including her work as a corporate lawyer, about her early work with Roger Fisher & Getting to Yes, and how the death of her parents led her to deep inquiry into her life purpose and the synthesis of law and the human spirit.
