The DRRC newsletter covers a range of topics including information on upcoming conferences, recent research, and new teaching exercises from the DRRC.
In the spring of 2019 we are hosting the DRRC Intergroup Conflict and Cooperation Conference, highlighting top interdisciplinary researchers with a focus on conflict and cooperation. We will continue to support student research by providing grants and sponsoring best student paper awards at the International Academy of Conflict Management and Academy of Management. The DRRC remains committed to being one of the top resources for research on negotiations and conflict management.
Cynthia S. Wang, executive director of DRRC and clinical professor in management and organizations, and Hooria Jazaieri, postdoctoral fellow in management and organizations, have been awarded a grant for examining gender bias in negotiations, and to develop a written exercise on gender bias in negotiations and teaching materials for faculty. The topic will be used in Northwestern courses, and data analysis of the exercise will enable the researchers to publish a paper on the project at universities around the nation.
