- women and the law--sexual harassment
- informal dispute resolution, organizational mediation
- research methods, alternative methodologies
I have 25 years of experience researching and publishing about sexual harassment. I have published research regarding sexual harassment complaint making, sexual harassment in male-dominated settings and more recently, globalization, transnational employment and sexual harassment policy. In addition to my scholarly work, I provide employers with sensitivity training and their attorneys with expert witness consultations. I have 8 years of experience researching and publishing on the topics of alternative dispute resolution and interpersonal conflict resolution. I have published and presented research on the impact of the ADR Movement on sexual harassment complaint making and the economics of ADR practice. I also provide conflict management training and dispute resolution consults to employers. I have 20 years of experience writing about and practicing such alternative forms of research methodologies as in-depth collaborative interviewing, ethnographic content analysis and visual data analysis.
