more about victoria
She Negotiates' training is a transformational workshop for women which nests today's most effective negotiation strategies and tactics in the context of the gender culture in which women do business. Together, Lisa and Victoria also write a regular column at Forbes, She Negotiates . . . and changes everything. Victoria also writes a bi-weekly advice column for the Gen-Y women's business journal, The Daily Muse.
After a 25-year commercial litigation career, Victoria earned her legal masters degree in dispute resolution from the world-famous Straus Institute at Pepperdine University School of Law. The knowledge, wisdom and skills she gained at Straus can be found in her two books on dispute resolution, The Grownups' ABCs of Conflict Resolution (Reason Press, 2010) and Success as a Mediator for Dummies (Wiley, 2012).
Although Victoria's focus is now on closing the wage and income gap for women, she has been training lawyers and business people of both gender in mutual benefit negotiation strategies since 2005.
She has done so at the Anderson School of Management, UCLA, USC and Pepperdine Schools of Law, Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Qwest Communications, Intel Corporation, and dozens of AmLaw200 law firms in Los Angeles and around the country.
Victoria's recent and upcoming speaking engagements include the Ms. J.D. Conference in Washington, D.C, the Annual Pennsylvania and Texas Conferences for Women, the Annual meeting of the Association of Legal Administrators ("ALA") in Honolulu and the Los Angeles ALA Chapter Conference in Los Angeles, the South Carolina Women Lawyers' Association (two years running), the Annual Conference of the National Women's MBA Association in Dallas, Texas, the Association of Women Accountants in San Diego, the American Bar Association Leadership Academy in San Francisco, and the Annual Meeting of the Association of Women's Bar Associations in Chicago.
The work of She Negotiates has been featured on NPR's "All Things Considered", the New York Times, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, and dozens of smaller news outlets. Victoria's writing on conflict resolution has also been published in the academic press.
Victoria graduated with a J.D., Order of the Coif, from U.C. Davis in 1980, and continues mediating and arbitrating the type of commercial cases she litigated for 25 years. Though no loner practicing law, Victoria continues to teach beginning trial and deposition skills for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy as she has been doing since the mid-90s.
