Let’s Discuss is a new series of virtual events brought to you by Ciarb. The series is free to attend.
Throughout 2023 we will be running a series of virtual events, hosted by members for members. These will get under the skin of the things that really matter in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) around the world and talk about the issues that matter to you. They will be a great opportunity to learn, discuss and meet new connections.
This years’ Lets Discuss series will be centred around several key areas: adjudication, mediation, technology, and diversity and inclusion.
Each area will have a several events, spread throughout the year, each focusing on a relevant topic. It’s up to you, our members to decide, what those topics will be. Join us for the Let’s Discuss sessions and influence the conversation with your ideas, learn from fellow ADR professionals and shape the future discussion around topics that matter to you.
We will confirm events as we go through the year to ensure they are always based on the most relevant issues of the moment.
