The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) and the Equal Representation in Arbitration (ERA) Pledge Young Practitioners Subcommittee are delighted to announce they have entered into a partnership to provide ERA members with discounted training.
The ERA Pledge is a global initiative that addresses the underrepresentation of women in international arbitral tribunals. Its objective is two-fold: to help female arbitrators secure more appointments on an equal opportunity basis and to improve the profile and visibility of women in arbitration more generally.
Speaking on behalf of the Equal Representation in Arbitration (ERA) Pledge Young Practitioners Subcommittee, Sofia Klot, Caroline Croft and Elizabeth Chan said, “We are delighted to partner with CIArb to help our members access the fantastic arbitrator-training courses offered by CIArb and to help them gain accreditation as CIArb fellows. In doing so, we hope to support those seeking to launch their careers as arbitrators and to promote greater gender and other forms of diversity in arbitrator appointments in international dispute resolution.”
Catherine Dixon, Director General of CIArb said: ‘CIArb is a global membership and professional body dedicated to effective dispute resolution. CIArb is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, supporting and enabling the best to join and progress in the ADR profession irrespective of their background. I'm proud that CIArb is working with the Equal Representation in Arbitration Pledge in providing this training’.
Under the partnership, CIArb will provide ERA members who fulfil the entry conditions with discounted training on CIArb’s Module 3 Evidence and Writing course on its International Arbitration Pathway, or discounted access to its Accelerated Route to Fellowship in International Arbitration, at CIArb headquarters. Successful completion of either programme enables individuals to apply for peer interview for CIArb Fellowship (FCIArb).
