Cross-Institutional Task Force on Gender Diversity in Arbitral Appointments and Proceedings

ICCA is pleased to provide an online home for the work of the Cross-Institutional Task Force on Gender Diversity in Arbitral Appointments and Proceedings, established by ICCA Governing Board Member Carolyn Lamm in 2019. Members of this Task Force represent leading arbitral institutions and gender diversity initiatives, and have collaborated to produce a Report – the eighth volume of the ICCA Reports Series. This Report publishes recent statistics on the appointments of female arbitrators and outlines best practices and opportunities to promote gender diversity in international dispute resolution.
