ICCA hosts Female Arbitrator Search in collaboration with the Equal Representation in Arbitration Pledge
ICCA is pleased to announce that it will be collaborating with the Equal Representation in Arbitration (ERA) Pledge to host the ERA Female Arbitrator Search tool on the ICCA website. Those looking for assistance in their search for female arbitrators can turn to the ERA Search Committee for help, via an online form.
How does it work?
The ERA Female Arbitrator Search allows you to submit a search request, which is sent on a confidential basis directly to the ERA Search Committee. Included in the request will be answers to questions such as ‘What is the field of expertise?’ and ‘What languages are required?’. The Committee will be on hand to respond to the request with a list of potential female arbitrator candidates who fulfil the search criteria.
The ERA Search Committee is comprised of individuals from dispute resolution organizations who render their assistance on a voluntary basis and does not include individuals from law firms. ICCA does not make or endorse recommendations.

ICCA undertakes this project as part of its ongoing commitment to inclusiveness and diversity in the field of international arbitration. To find out about ICCA’s other inclusiveness initiatives, click here.
