IBA Arbitration Committee - ICCA Conference Diversity Checklist

Recognising the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (‘DEI‘) in the field of international arbitration, the Arbitration Committee of the International Bar Association (‘AC-IBA’) and the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (‘ICCA’) have joined forces in drafting this checklist for promoting DEI in international arbitration conferences. 


Acknowledging that each conference is different and that the steps taken to promote DEI will accordingly vary, the goal in proposing this checklist is to ensure that panellists and delegates at international arbitration conferences come from diverse backgrounds and that participation is inclusive. 


We hope that this Checklist prompts useful reflection, and we look forward to witnessing its contribution to more diverse and inclusive conferences around the world.
