About Sarah Federman, PhD
I am an assistant professor of Negotiation and Conflict Management at the University of Baltimore. My academic work explores language and meaning-making as it relates to conflict and reconciliation, looking specifically at post mass atrocity issues (apology, truth-telling, forgiveness and accountability-corporate, State, and personal). I have worked pro bono for the House of Representatives and the State Department. My 2019 presentation at Harvard University considered that how we describe our perpetrators, heroes and victims affects how we respond to conflict. This continues to be a central theme of my work.
I continue to speak at national and international venues regarding conflict, negotiation, and related topics.

My consulting and coaching practice is a bit more personal. I apply training in strategic interventions to transform the experiences of businesses, individuals, and organizations. I have done interventions with everyone from toddlers to returning soldiers, Muslim peace activists, doctors, and government workers.
